Friday Spam Stats

As it’s a Friday evening I thought I’d have a quick look at the spam filtering stats to see what’s been going on.
I haven’t looked at ALL the figures yet, but just to give you a flavour of what’s going on…
One of our filtering nodes was sent 372,460 emails yesterday. It rejected 88% of those mails!!
Of the 30 thousand plus emails that it filtered nearly 30% was marked as spam.
Can you imagine that amount of junk hitting your office mail server on a dsl line?
I’d rather not!

    I use windows XP and have a free Eircom address. Can you provide a free spam block?

    Our filtering only works for people who have their own domain name. We cannot filter email
