SpamCop Email System for Individuals
Unsolicited commercial email, aka spam. Everyone gets it. Do you wonder
what is going to be waiting for you when you open your inbox? Would you
want your parents or your children to read the email you receive? If
you're like most people, the answer is no. Ads for illegal prescription
drugs, pyramid scams, child pornography, and online gambling mix with the
barrage of soliciations for merchant accounts, new credit histories, and
cheap mortgages. One large ISP estimated that 30% of the email they
receive is spam. That's hundreds of millions of emails per week and the
number is growing.
Now you have a choice. You can take control of your
inbox. The SpamCop Email System is powerful enough for an internet
veteran, but easy for anyone to use. When email for you arrives at the
SpamCop Email System, it is analyzed to see if it comes from a known spam
source or from a system likely to be used by spammers. If that's the
case, the email is automatically moved into a special "Held Mail" folder
for suspected spam. What's left is your good email, free of nearly all
The SpamCop Email System can work with your old email address or give you a
new permanent email address that will work no matter what ISP you use. It
is simple to use, inexpensive, and means you don't have to read all that
Note: at this time, the SpamCop email system cannot filter AOL
accounts. AOL has decided to lock their users to
their system and won't let you forward your mail to an external email
address. AOL users can use the system with a new spamcop.net
address if you choose.

How does it work?
When email arrives at SpamCop, our systems go to work checking the email for viruses
and spam. If the email has a virus, the entire email is removed and a warning is
sent to your email address. Email without viruses is checked to see if it has
passed through a mail server that has been associated with spam. SpamCop has an
extensive database of spam sources that is automatically updated every two minutes.
All email received is checked to see if it has passed through a system which is
in the database. If it is, then the message is flagged as probable spam.
Mail marked as spam is stored in a special folder on our servers for two weeks. At
any time, you can login to our website and review your Held Mail. If a mail is
accidentally held which isn't spam, you can easily move it to your Inbox and
mark the sender so their mail won't be held any more.
You can keep your existing email program
SpamCop provides you with an email address or you can use your existing email
address (see below). In either case, your mail is delivered to an Inbox which sits
on our servers. If you want, you can read your email using the excellent webmail program
we provide. This program lets you read and send mail, manage your address book, and
download attachments all from any computer with a web browser. Or, you can set your
email program (like Outlook Express, Eudora, Netscape, or others) to read your mail
off our servers. The system works with PC's, Mac's, and any computer that can read
standard internet email.
You can keep your existing email address
The SpamCop Email System is like a water filter. We can't filter your mail unless
the email actually passes through our systems. However, most people can continue
using their existing email address. There are two ways to do this. One is to ask
your ISP to forward your existing email address to the new address we provide.
The second is to configure our system to fetch your mail from your old email address.
If you can read your email using a standard email program like Outlook Express,
Netscape, or Eudora, then the system can work for you.
After you have your email sent to your new account on our servers, you simply need to change your email program
to read your email off our servers instead of from your ISP. The
setup instructions walk you through the entire
