Here are the latest spam statistics for the week of January 31, 2005 to February 6, 2005.
Note: My test domain tuffwebhosting.com started out at 17.31% spam. The numbers from last week had risen to 46.92% spam! That is in only one months time.
This shows just how bad spam can be and just how easy it is for a company to be overwhelmed by spam. If a few users get their email addresses on a spam list or if they accidentally open a few spam mails... Those web beacons will trigger the spam into sending more and more spam!
It will be interesting to see how long it will take for 80% or more of my email to become spam.
