I installed a new spam fighting solution for my company on May 9th. I checked today to see how we were doing, and was rather astounded by the numbers:
Blocked: Virus 314
Allowed: Tagged 2,193
Total Received 158,352
I don't know what I'm more surprised by: the total amount of messages we've received, or how little of what we received is actually legitimate. Keep in mind we have maybe 20 e-mail users at most. Perhaps that's why 158k total messages astounds me.
So for a small company with a handful of users, less than 10% of all e-mail we receive is legitimate. I can only imagine that this problem is exponentially worse for larger installations.
How are others faring? Post your horror stories here!
