Wildly OT at this point, but if you're going to report spam, report  
it manually.

A lot of spamcop reports are frivolous or mistargeted. The accuracy  
of them
varies depending on the recipient ISP - they're OK for simple DSL  
but tend to be quite inaccurate at webhosts or bandwidth providers.  
also so badly mangled by the spamcop system that they're not usable for
enforcement. The most ISPs tend to do is to count them.

A single manual report will often be worth dozens of spamcop reports and
will usually get much more attention.
