The State of Spam

If billions of spam messages travel throughout the Internet every day, but consumers see just a few of them in their inboxes, do they really exist?
Unsolicited bulk e-mail, otherwise known as spam, accounted for about 80 percent of all the e-mail traffic on the Internet during the first three months of 2006. This was the conclusion reached by the international Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group, whose members include AOL, Bell Canada, Cingular Wireless, EarthLink, France Telecom, Microsoft, Verizon, and Yahoo. Together, these organizations account for about 390 million mailboxes.
And they should know. Microsoft and AOL combined block nearly 5 billion pieces of spam every day. Nearly nine out of every ten e-mail messages at Microsoft's MSN Hotmail are spam. The company says 95 percent of them never reach their intended targets and thus, spam is contained.
