Spam is Out of Control!

What if I were to tell you that about 4% of all e-mail moving across the Internet is real? That’s right… ONLY about 4% is actually REAL e-mail! The rest is spam! That is ridiculous!

More than 95% of e-mail is ‘junk’

“Analysis of the contents of millions of e-mails has revealed that less than 4% is legitimate traffic. Further work has shown that most of this junk mail is originating on hijacked home computers. E-mail security firm Return Path said 99% of the computers it monitors that send mail have been taken over by spammers or virus writers. Return Path reached its estimate by calculating a ‘reputation score’ for the 20 million net addresses of those machines.”
