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.
