Mr. Coffee Nerves: Someday local teen sluts WILL want to party with me and my 0.5% m0rtgage and I'll never know.
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: And for those of us who actually WANT to increase our manhood while losing weight in our spare time, better filters = more misery.
fusillade762: I don't get spam anymore because I don't use my primary email addy for anything online. I thought everyone had a secondary account for petitions and such.
toetag: I had to report to the CIO yesterday on said subject. 80% of all mail coming in was spam in the last 60 days. As tkohl said, it can be hire depending on the month.
pdieten: Those are awful nice numbers. I used to manage the mail system at a company with a 2-letter domain name. Our percentage was routinely over 95% and often higher.
wademh: On my work email, they manage to filter out 50% of my legitimate email and somehow think that improves efficiency.
toetag: Tell them to get a different product. We used a product that I spent around 6 ours a week creating filters. Then we switched to a new product, I spend 0 hours a week on it and I can't think when the last time a user called and complained about legitimate email being trapped.
buntz: I've gotten 95 pieces of SPAM mail since January 1st in my junk folder.And I don't even give out my main email address!!
Vegan Meat Popsicle: wademh: On my work email, they manage to filter out 50% of my legitimate email and somehow think that improves efficiency.Do you not have the ability to mark things as spam/not spam or whitelist certain senders or domains?

ChubbyTiger: Gmail is best mail. I get maybe one spam message a week. Maybe. Lots of useless crap from the crazy uncle, but I can't just send everything of his to the spam folder.
wademh: Vegan Meat Popsicle: wademh: On my work email, they manage to filter out 50% of my legitimate email and somehow think that improves efficiency.Do you not have the ability to mark things as spam/not spam or whitelist certain senders or domains?Not as a user. They don't send things through at all. They also maintain a 5 mb limit on attachment size which really sucks when you have to send around presentations for comment/editing. I miss having quality IT support.
1nsanilicious: That beats my real mail box, I get about 99.9% spam junk mail there.
Vegan Meat Popsicle: What are you using? We're using a Barracuda 800 at our main site and a 200 at each branch office and they work unbelievably well. Basically just plugged them in, set the networking and a few preferences up and changed a couple routing groups in our Exchange array and we were done, it's hummed along ever since without a problem. Plus it has the little outlook plugin you can push across the network to clients so they can manage almost everything themselves right within Outlook however is best for them.We still get complaints about legit emails getting caught but now it's just a matter of educating them on whitelisting and managing their own spam/not spam every now and then instead of tweaking rules.
Snort: This just in, Gawker reprints the Economist's content who reprints Kaspersky's content.Its a giant circle jerk.

I miss having quality IT support.Speaking as a "quality" IT person, PLEASE STOP USING EMAIL AS A FILESHARE! That 10MB spreadsheet they sent you that you changed font on and forwarded back is now taking up 20MB. Learn how to use a shared network location, at least, and better yet, a version-control management system. I know "drive-space is cheap", but if you add bandwidth and messaging-backup and archiving infrastructure, it adds up to a really expensive, very inefficient file-store. TMYK
Swoop1809: Gmails spam filters are so good I actually get more spam on my physical mailbox than i do in my in box. It's gotten to the point where I check my mail once a week since the majority of the time it's just adverts and insurance company spam
Satanic_Hamster: Between server side filters for (Google now helps run Virginia Tech's email) for spam and client sized, I don't see maybe one spam a month, if that. And that's generally only if I look in my client side spam filter.
