The Gmail form stopped working, i.e. when I submit all the data as usual, I get the ordinary "Thank you" screen, but I also receive a bounce back message to my contact e-mail. Does anybody experience this as well and what can be other ways of reporting scammers' maildrops to Gmail?

My experience with the Gmail form are that yes, sometimes, you will receive a bounce, but they actually do receive the message. They're unfortunately not very communicative about what happens once they've received the message, and they never send any followup messages.

The only time you should be concerned is when the form provides some kind of blanket "error" message because that means the posting didn't send anything to them.

Do you think so? I have my doubts. Back in the day when I submitted my reports via the online form without bounce backs, I could notice one thing proving that Gmail took action - the discredited e-mail addresses disappeared from the scam mails I received. Now I get e-mails with the same addresses over and over again.

From my own experience and followup I can confirm that they did shut the addresses down that I reported. When they did not, I reported them again.

It's still far from ideal, and I hear what you're saying, but that should not stop you from continuing to report them. They do eventually take action.

I'm speaking specifically about GMail here. Yahoo and Hotmail are both still woefully inadequate. I would still like to add that Hotmail has recently undergone some kind of shake-up. Before this month I had to report to four (4) distinct email addresses:

report-spam@hotmail.com
abuse@hotmail.com
report-spam@msn.com
abuse@msn.com

And I would immediately get four auto-response messages, then a day or two later, a very lengthy response.

Now I get three distinct responses in that second step, and they aren't always the same or from the same people. They appear to be taking much more action on these reports. I still have to report it to all four addresses because I get conflicting responses from each about which is the correct address.
