I’ve been collecting spam sent to my various email addresses for just over 5 years now (since 1/1/2004). I thought it was about time I shared the statistics with the world!
|Year||Spam count||Spam per day||Total spam size||Avg spam size|
|2009 to date||1,850||119||13MB||7.0kB|
So spam size hasn’t changed much since 2005, but the quantity triples annually from 2006 to 2008, but the rate is down in 2009 so far. Either way: guess there’s no stopping the spam machine!
