Statistics on Junk Mail


Tags: [link] [comments (0)] [raw]

Here are the stats on the mail that was finally delivered to my address at IMSc during November 2007. The "devnull" messages are those that were instantly sent to /dev/null, the "junk" messages were messages that were sent to a separate folder --- all of those too turned out to be spam!

Total Number of messages        = 4450
Total Number of devnull messages    = 1993
Total Number of junk messages       = 563
Residual Number of Useful messages  = 4450 - 1993 - 563
                    = 1894

Total size of all messages      = 40157139
Total size of all devnull messages  = 11788662
Total size of all junk messages     = 6454568
Total size of all useful messages   = 40157139 - 11788662 - 6454568
                    = 21913909

Seems that roughly 50% of the mail is spam.
