Spam problem? It looks alive and well to me!

I was busy crunching email numbers for my company this morning. Here's the break out:

For the month of September 2005:

Inbound email: 5,934,855

Inbound email detected as Spam: 5,655,320

Inbound email containing a virus: 6788

Percentage of email detected as Spam: 95%


We're a small business ~300 users. Wouldn't you love to see the stats of a large company with 10,000 employees or so. Good Lord! Looks to me like Spam is doing pretty well; it's the legitimate email that's endangered.
