Re: BT "phishing@bt.com" rejecting forwarded phishing e-mails MODS ATTENTION, PLEASE!!

Go to solution

I've just sent a test email to phishing@bt.com without a problem.

If you think BT or any other ISP can totally eliminate spam and phishing emails, I'm afraid you are deluding yourself.

As the original poster, I long gave up on pursuing this issue. The BT Phishing reporting process is completely unreliable, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

I now just forward any problem e-mails to report@phishing.gov.uk which works every time and then delete the offending message. I’m not sure whether it’s just coincidence but since I started doing this there has been a very significant reduction in the number of phishing e-mails I receive: it’s down to about one or two a month from upwards of two or three a day.

Just had the same rejection from "phishing@bt.com" this morning, both by forwarding the suspect email and by attaching it to a new email,  so this problem is still on-going on 29th July.

Probably simpler to just use report@phishing.gov.uk

I did not say anything about BT or any other ISP being able to totally eliminate spam e-mails, so nobody is deluded about anything. It would just be nice that something that BT opted to put in place and actively encourages people to use worked reliably all the time.
