Here are the stats on the mail that was finally delivered to
my address at IMSc during March 2008. 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 = 9370 Total Number of Devnull Messages = 4781 Total Number of Junk Messages = 2740 Residual Number of Useful messages = 9370 - 4781 - 2740 = 1849 Total size of all messages = 57113600 Total size of all devnull messages = 28700792 Total size of all junk messages = 11560530 Total size of all useful messages = 57113600 - 28700792 - 11560530 = 16852278
A substantial spurt in spam from previous months. Now about a third of the mail is spam!
