Here are the counts by day for this
month so far, updated as at
The last few values of this table are
underestimates because some emails are
retained for comparison with incoming
emails. Hence they haven't yet made it
into their final resting place.
And yes, I really do get that many spam
emails per day. It's interesting to see
how various changes in the world have
caused it go go up and down. It was
increasing exponentially, but then a
botnet or two were taken off-line, and
it dropped. Then it went up again, but
now it's again in decline.
There are also occasional "spikes"
when my domain gets "spoofed", spam
emails are sent pretending to come
from my domain, and hence I get all
the "bounce" messages.
Comments welcome - if you have anything
interesting to say, please let us know ...
