Today i received my first SpamCop report and it has come in via Amazon EC2.
The mail was sent via Campaign Monitor only to subscribers who had an account with our service. We do not accept random subscribers from people visiting the site or offline. Only people who created an account.
However some accounts are older than others and have not been mailed often so may have forgotten us (I did include a reminder).
The campaign went out to an 80k list today and so far only one report. The email has a very big unsubscribe top and bottom which i believe helped.
The reporter left no comments.
Email from Amazon here:
