Just for the sake of it, here are my running stats for 2015 (and indeed from 2012, all in kilometres). Here’s to more mileage in 2016!
Here are my numbers for 2008 (2007 stats. in square brackets) broken into two parts:
First half of 2008 (up to 30 June 2008):
227659 e-mails received (plus the GMail ones).
211699 spams filtered by MailWasher Pro.
Second half of 2008 (up to 30 December 2008):
62,319 e-mails received (plus the GMail ones).
41,672 spams filtered by MailWasher Pro.
289,978 e-mails received (plus the GMail ones) [356,032 so minus 19%] .
253,371 spams filtered by MailWasher Pro [319,499 - minus 21%].
87% spam then.
The headline figures look good, but that split is what’s important. Basically in June 2008 with my spam stats. looking like heading for another record, I decided to kill my “catch-all” e-mail set-ups and painstakingly create all legitmate mailboxes and aliases. And with that, the spam stats. have come down dramatically.
