First of all, please don't top-post. It gets the "conversation" all out
of order and people have to read backwards to find out what's going on.
As for your problem, one solution would be to get a paid spamcop.net
You'd then have to set up your "mailhosts" configuration so that SC
"knows" where to expect mail from and doesn't label *your* servers as
the source of spam.
Test a few spams by submitting them and reporting as usual, and if
nothing untoward happens you can then start quick-reporting them.
In order to do so, you start submitting them to:
quick.<16-char-code>@spam.spamcop.net instead of:
When quick-reporting spam, only the admin of the source IP address is
sent a report, but you don't have to confirm anything. It's fire and
forget, but you *must* make sure that the parser is determining
correctly the source of the spam before switching to "autopilot". I also
believe you have to activate the quick-reporting facility after you log
in, and that it is deactivated automatically whenever you change your
mailhost configuration (but you can reactivate it afterwards).
