Flood of spam hit 92.5% of email in August

@ 2004/09/02
On six days during August, spam soared to over 90 per cent of all email traffic and on one day hit the dizzyingly depressing heights of 92.59 per cent.

My hotmail address started to get spam half a year ago although I had been using it spamfree for a long time and it really escalated quickly. unsubscribing whereever possible helpt a bit but not a lot. Recently, I've hardly been getting any spam. why? beats me Maybe hotmail also has a better spam filter these days...

Hm, 2 days ago, I clicked on a few unsubsribe links, and I haven't had spam last 2 days . But I'm starting to doubt whether this was a good thing, because now I've confirmed my e-mail realy exist . Hell yeah, at least I'm now 100% spam free

so that's a good thing

check your MyTelenet status, spam filtering was enabled a while back, the filter is quite good.

I do not get one spammail message on my pandora account, and that's the only one I use

(not one = zero, nil, none)

@ madshrimps mail nowadays is good for 30-40 spam messages a day, a year ago that was about 20.

Messages are auto deleted.

But i was surprised about the large amount of people that still buy something that is presented through spam email. Can't find the article anymore but the number was huge.
