Q: What is SpamCop?
Posted by - NA - on 05 Jan 2009 3:05 PM

A: SpamCop is a free spam reporting service, allowing recipients of unsolicited bulk email (UBE) and unsolicited commercial email (UCE) to report offenses to the senders' Internet Service Providers' (ISPs), and sometimes their web hosts. SpamCop uses these reports to compile a DNSBL of computers sending spam called the "SpamCop Blocking List", (SCBL) and websites referenced in the spam are used to create the Spam URI Realtime Blocklists (SURBL) RHSBL.

SpamCop has tools for ISPs to manage the reports sent to them, to see details on individual spam messages, and to mark incidents as resolved. Paying members can configure how reports are sent and avoid a "nag" screen. There are also forums for discussing the services. Also available are paid email and mail management services which include spam filtering.
