What I'm Finding Online
Sunday, July 23, 2006

For the last month I've been categorizing my spam by day of the week. The day I get it it goes into that label. I was curious on how much spam I really was getting and how the gmail filters worked.

So without further ado .... my stats (word used loosly):
Date: June 18 - July 22
Total: 335 spam mails
Avg. per week (5 weeks): ~67 emails per week
Avg. per day: 9.5 per day
Daily Totals for 5 weeks:
Sunday: 53
Monday: 55
Tuesday: 40
Wednesday: 45
Thursday: 58
Friday: 44
Saturday: 40

On average Gmail caught most of it. I might have gotten 1 or 2 in my inbox a week but that's it.

I remember why I did this. In a podcast from Alex talked about how gmails filters were horrible. My guess is his email address is to out there in the public. If he compared how many gmail is catching to what is getting through.

That's that take it for what it is. Now I'm going to go and delete my spam mail I've been hording for the last month.
