UC-Berkeley e-mail users battle spam onslaught

Every day, University of California-Berkeley senior political science and history major Stephen Sanders gets about 150 spam e-mail messages in his CalMail inbox, all trying to sell him things like stock tips, erection enhancing drugs and cell phones.

Sanders is not alone, as many of the 68,000 CalMail account-holders fight an endless battle with spam on a daily basis.

Where exactly spammers get student e-mail addresses is unclear.

Many students say that they reserve their CalMail e-mail accounts for official purposes only.
