Results from yesterday
Here is a little update on spam from yesterday:
My new domain just for testing spam: tuffwebhosting.com
Legitimate email: 0
Total Spams Received: 5
Total Viruses Received: 7
Total Suspected Spam: 0 (meaning messages that are probably spam but our software can't determine for sure.)
My control domain:
Legitimate email: 20
Total Spams Received: 104
Total Viruses Received: 0
Total Suspected Spam: 0
I still find it amazing that by only posting to a few newsgroups I'm getting up to 7 email viruses a day! I'm a bit disappointed that I am so far only receiving 5 spams per day from those newsgroups. I'm going to begin some other strategies for getting spam next week.
I'll keep you posted of my results!
