Since I started using the excellent SpamBayes Outlook Addin spam filter three-and-a-half months ago, I’ve gotten an average of 64 junk email per day. That’s a total of 4993 junk email (I’m sure I’ll have gotten #5000 by the time you’ve read this). In the last week I’ve gotten an average of 150 junk email per day.
Fortunately, thanks to the SpamBayes plugin and since I have a high-bandwidth internet connection, this isn’t much of a problem for me. Still — 150 junk mail a day? What a terrific waste of time and resources.
The following chart shows the amount of junk email I’ve gotten each day since late May, 2003.
