Re: Extremely High Spam Statistics

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

We deliver around 3 million messages per day to users inboxes, 87%-93%
of which we identify as spam and filter to a spam folder on a regular

That doesn't include the very very large number of attempted deliveries
from SMTP servers that try to pipeline data which are blocked, or the
20%-25% messages which are discarded at our edge servers due to an
extremely high spam score.
