Spam Reduction - Are you getting Less?

  €dstowe 08:14 31 Oct 2007

Checking the spam trap on my main business email account this morning there were 24 messages. The average daily count for the last few weeks, it has been, I suppose about 30 a day - almost all NatWest and RBS. Six months ago this account was getting 500+ junk messages a day.

Anyone else noticed this reduction or am I just lucky?

I have noticed a great reduction for my account, however it may be to do with which ISP you are with - I am with eclipse and used to get 10-15 spams a day now I get 2-3 a week!

I'm with BT - have been for many years and it's the spam that gets caught in their trap.

I occasionaly find important mail in the Spam folder!

Only yesterday after flogging an heirloom on eBay and wondering why the buyer hadn't contacted me.... found his response in my Aol spam folder.

Last year there was a spate of about 240 "real" spam per day, but times change.

I've just got a hotmail account (had it a week now) - haven't had any spam yet.
