OffTopic: hotmail account to for GSA
a bit offtopic but maybe someone knows it, i just created my first hotmail account fully dedicated for SER, and have SER running now for a few minutes, but stupid hotmail puts pretty much 80% to spam, hence SER cant read it and confirm it. Hence 2 questions -
1 - is there a way to disable the junk filter on hotmail, (i checked settings already and changed some but it still puts most in junk mail)
2 - after i manually confirmed the emails from junk, is SER able to post with the account info on the next run?
When you do the search that Bytefaker mentions, you will see that people mentions buying several hundred accounts from users at Fiverr. This is highly recommended. But then you have to set this spam filter for all of these. S4nt0s (one of the members) has very kindly supplied a bot that will automate this. He did this in a thread on the BlackHatWorld forum. I included a link to this in one of the other threads on this forum.
So...to paraphrase Bytefaker..."seek and ye shall find"!
If we're going to use catchalls we should have a placeholder like %firstname.lastname@example.org.
and you can continue submitting while verifications happen on old email and new aliased email
going to try that now
In the "Data" section ---> email@example.com
in the "Email Verification" section ---> firstname.lastname@example.org
The email that is in the Data section will get blacklisted. Then you just change the "anyword" after the plus sign and let it keep going. You don't have to create a new email account.
I have been running like this for several days and it is working fine.
Sven and a couple others don't like this idea for a couple reasons...
1.) Adding the "+" (plus sign) is not allowed in an email address by some hosting providers. Mine allows it, and Hotmail & Gmail & Yahoo allow it. I don't see this as a real "problem" anyway because most people will not use an email from one of their own domains.
2.) They think it leaves too much of a "footprint". I am not sure I understand the reasoning for this. Your email has already been flagged - meaning they have already found the "footprint".
3.) Some of the platforms that SER submits to apparently do not allow email addresses with a plus sign in them. I think this is the only "real" valid reason to not use this tactic. But, I think there are only a few of these platforms and I have not noticed any significant change in posting while running like this.
OK...I should have gone and checked another time before I made that last post. Apparently http://www.stopforumspam.com is smart enough to check for this type of email address. I just checked one of my accounts and they have both versions of the email account blacklisted (with plus and without).
Based on this, you should not use this method for you email addresses.
good idea with the + i actually didnt now it, but since SFS blacklisted that footprint already its obsolete, there is a nother solution but works only on gmail, i tried on hotmail where it didnt work
on gmail accounts you can put something like
so by putting a . anywhere
its a fresh email adress for the SFS and for the spam checker, but gmail treats it as your main email, needless to say whenever you got your email blacklisted you just more the .dot to the next position and are good to go again, on gmail you can do that thing with @gmail.com and @googlemail.com - so the formula is
.dot x 2 .... which is quite a lot material to use
imho its very unlikely that the would not allow a .dot in SFS cause its common as fuck
however that works only on gmail not on hotmail accounts
