Back when I ran OS 9, I had OneClick installed. One of its many uses was reporting spam.

    Back when I ran OS 9, I had OneClick installed. One of its many uses was
    reporting spam.

    I had it set up so that I'd click on a button and it would open up the
    detailed header info, copy the entire message, open up a SpamCop
    reporting window in the browser, and let me copy the message into the
    field.

    I prefer this over forwarding messages to Spamcop, since I feel that
    adds additional steps (you still have to wait for messages back from
    SpamCop with the reporting address, and the email address I have
    registered for the SpamCop account is a free account that limits the
    frequency I can check it).

    Basically, what can I use to get the functionality back? I liked using
    the button--easier than selecting something from a scripting menu.

    You can probably do that in QuicKeys X. QuicKeys is a similar macro
    utility, can handle AppleScript in its macros and has the possibility to
    link scripts to buttons.

    You can script Safari to do what you're describing. Personally, I use
    Mailsmith, entirely scripted, to do my SpamCop stuff - it sends the
    report to SpamCop, then when the reply comes in it automatically sees
    the message, locates the URL, opens that in the browser, and presses the
    Submit button for me. Look, ma, no hands.

    If pressing cute buttons is really really important to you, you can
    write your script with AppleScript Studio or even Konfabulator. m.
