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
"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.
