Spam Facts April 26, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in computers.
UW is a big place. And the computing folks there manage a lot of systems. Mail, of course. Our group’s computer guy knows a person involved in C&C’s mail operations and discovered that:
- 95% of all mail that arrives at UW is spam
- The record of the “sender not found” bounce messages into one account (like the ones that were causing me problems the other day) is 40,000!!! So, my problems are minor.
40,000!!! It is no wonder everyone is switching over to instant messaging.
