Something has to be done.
From mailstat this morning:
TotalNumberFolder
13377552679/dev/null
7825932442Mail/IN.junk
1700998 201/var/spool/mail/tina


That's 2 weeks worth of mail. 201 real messages (well, less then that, because some spam makes it though the filters), 1121 pieces of spam. And that doesn't count the spam I block at the MTA level (admittedly, not much).

That's more then 5 pieces of spam for every real email.

It's times like these I'm glad I run my own server. I get this wonderful twinge in my BOFH-y bits when I send that much spam to /dev/null.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

5 pieces of spam to every e-mail? Wish I had it that good. My primary Yahoo account gets 80-100 spam for every true e-mail, my secondary Yahoo account (my aemilia account) gets about 40 per true, and my Cox account (which I do not get *any* e-mail to at all), gets about 60 spam a day.
