Flood of spam hit 92.5% of email in August

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.

@ 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.

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

(not one = zero, nil, none)

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