Subject: [SECURITY] Extremely High Spam Statistics


I would be interested in comparing our spam stats with other 
institutions.  We are currently sent around around 450 000 
emails per day, of which 98-99% are spam leaving around 5000 
valid email messages passed through.  This is transparent to 
our uses who only receive valid email.  

Are other institution's spam levels this high?  I would be 
very interested in hearing stats as I thought global rates 
were only around 90-95%.
