We use Barracuda and have run between 78 and 85% spam for the last four days.

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%.
