How To Automate Spamcop Submissions

Documentation Spamcop is a service which provides RBLs for mailservers in order to reject incoming mail from spammers. Their philosophy is to process possible spam complaints from users. When they receive a certain amount of complaints during a time-period then they will blacklist the offender. This system is dependant on spam reporting from users. However, their submission process is not very user-friendly.

  1. You need either to forward the spam to a spamcop-email address given to you during sign-up (something like --> I made this address just up) or you manually copy'n'paste the headers and the body and fill them into a form on their server.
  2. You then receive an email to the email address that you have supplied when you signed up.
  3. In this email, there will be a link that asks you to verify the supplied data on a webform. This is not just clicking the link but also manually submitting the webpage.
As I have said above, Spamcop is pretty much dependant on the user input. If no one submits and verifies spam, then they will have no blacklist. However that whole submission and verification process is a bit annoying. Why should I bother to actually submit spam to spamcop and have it verified? If I just delete it, that will take less time...
