2820.63 spam mails a dayEric | November 20, 2007
Today I was stunned to notice that my GMail spam folder had risen up to 84619 spam mails! Because GMail automatically deletes spam mails within 30 days this means I had been receiving around 2820 spam mails daily, almost two spam mails per minute! This is really gross. I really hope new anti-spam technology will arrive soon. Many thanks to GMail though for having such a fantastic filter! I think I never had any false positive and right now maybe maximally 10 spam mails get through to me every day. If that’s 10 out of 2820 I can live with it.
