Another simple question:  How do I report spam that has got through SpamFilter ISP?
 
I have just had a Nigerian spam through and wanted to notify it as spam but there doesn't seem to be any mechanism for doing this.
 
Regards,
 
Chris.

Love the Nigerian!  They will keep us in business for a long time.

Anyway, you can't submit spam that gets through to spamfilter.  A lot of people find this weird, but that is how it works.

We submit spam that gets through to a third party spam organization, like spamcop.net and if you use their blacklists you will gain the benefit.

You can also analyze the messages yourself and develop keywords for those few that sneak past.

You can pay, but you can submit for free also.  They have a 7 second delay or something when submitting messages if you are not a paying member.

It is spamcop.net, not .com.
