Hello,

I have seen when reporting SPAM via https://spamcop.net .
Some provider opt-out their e-mails so the report was "dev-nulling".
And after contacting SPAMming ISP manually, providing e-mail source.
They replied that they ignore anonymous reports.
I do not know what it means.
Yet in reply to my questions they have just sent this link:

I have seen it already, that they require certain format and source code is not good for them.

I was searching for any tool that would allow me to convert e-mail source to mentioned/linked ARF/MARF format, yet found only https://github.com/bluelotussoftware/arf-message-generator where i do not know how to install its Java modules on Linux (Deb./Ubuntu). But here is .jar which is executable i think.

Can you please help with a tool that does such a conversion?

Thank You

Btw. another site where i have account and reporting spamming IPs is https://abuseipdb.com
I would suggest SPAMCop articles:
(Category) How do I configure my mailserver to reject mail based on the blocklist?
(Answer) How can I use the blocklist without mailserver configuration?

STILL LOOKING FOR THE ANSWER

btw. here is where i report SPAM:
https://www.spamcop.net/
https://signalants.signal-spam.fr/reportings/new
https://www.spam.org/report
https://www.abuseipdb.com/report?ip=
https://cleantalk.org/blacklists/report-ip

You can report it to your email provider or to the government because it's illegal. You can also report the different IP addresses also that it's coming from if you're able to grab it from the email header, it may result in it being blacklisted.

I would just change and delete that email because your email is more than likely in a database somewhere being sold or will be used by more spammers in the future. That's why you should use different email addresses for different purposes, and to use email aliases for the emails you know that you will use to sign up for many things.

Frankly, some service providers give zero sh*ts about their abusive customers. They often tout themselves as free-speech, off-shore, or bulletproof hosting. What they really are is a cesspool of maggots that infest the 'net and trying to report them to themselves is going to be about as effective as Sisyphus' work.

The real solution is to learn to filter the trash out. Even then, it's a never-ending battle.

If you're running the email server, you can do some filtering. Email clients have a bunch of rules that you can use. Your ISP may even include a spamassassin score in the headers that you can use to help filter.

Also e-mail blacklists such as Spamcop are a pita because you can get blacklisted without good reason and it's really hard to get your ip removed from a blacklist. So if some mail-server where you are sending mail to happens to use one of those lists you are screwed and not much you can do about it.

I think you should report it to your email service provider. It is illegal.
