Spam Levels

According to the server this blog is hosted on, there’s been 101 emails processed today with 72 (71.3%) of those being detectable spam.

It doesn’t sound a lot until you consider one of our shared hosting servers has handled 22,251 so far today with 3,001 being low scoring spam (13.5%), 11,355 (51.0%) being high scoring spam and 583 (2.6%) being viruses. That’s 67.1% of emails having to be rejected as they are spam or viruses….
