MacDotCom spam: Where to forward? - Mac Applications & Software

I received my first .mac spam. Does anyone know where to forward it to for processing? I searched FAQ and forums at Apple but found no reference to spam. -- Gnarlie http://www.Gnarlodious.com/Cogent/Cogent.html...

    Default MacDotCom spam: Where to forward?

    I received my first .mac spam. Does anyone know where to forward it to for
    processing? I searched FAQ and forums at Apple but found no reference to
    spam.

    The abuse address for .mac domains is com.

    But before you send them an email: Are you *sure* it came from a .mac address?
    If you're just looking at the From: address, it's probably forged.

    Sign up for a free SpamCop account at http://spamcop.net/ and forward the
    spam as an attachment to the special e-mail address they give you.

    They will yze the headers and automatically report the spam to where it
    actually came from.

    I have a .Mac address. It was forged once by a spammer selling HGH. At
    least his list must have been pretty clean, only got 50 or so bounced
    mails sent back to me. I've heard of people getting thousands.

    OK, but I'm talking about the spam that CAME to my mailbox at dotMac.

    For example, my Earthlink account I send spam to
    com and they add the address to a database of
    known senders for blocking. Is com the equivalent dotMac
    service?

    I don't believe .Mac offers ISP spam filtering of any kind, thus
    reporting it wouldn't be required. I know that they use Brightmail
    though as it had caught a few PC viruses so perhaps I'm mistaken. But
    if they were using it for spam filtering it's doing a poor job.
    Spam overload is what caused me to abandon the address.

    I agree that their spam filtering is a complete joke. Several of my
    domains expired because they blocked the renewal notices as spam. At
    the same time, half the spam I get comes through my .Mac account. They
    blocked something that obviously was not spam while letting dozens of
    obvious real spam messages through. I won't be paying for another
    year, and I don't recommend the service for anyone who ever gets actual
    important e-mail or dislikes spam, which I would assume is everyone.

    Is SpamCop still operating? The last 10 or so spams I forwarded to
    them got no reply.

    I've been using SpamCop for years. Unfortunately, Apple's Mail.app
    doesn't seem to be able to forward messages as attachments... so the
    spam I get while on my Mac goes unreported. Did I miss something? Is
    there a way to do this that I'm not aware of?
