Spam control is one of my most challenging battlefields. I, receive an average of 40,300 emails every month from the internet.
In the last 3 months I received a total of 1,20,900 emails.
45,000 of these are delivered, meaning that 75,900 of these are Spam.
This translates into 3,03,600 Spams per year.
I use SPAM ASSASSIN
(#1 Open-Source Spam Filter) to identify spam using a wide range of heuristic tests on mail headers and body text.
