New Report on Global Email Spam

10 March 2006

A newly-released study of more than 100 million email inboxes designed to outline the scope of the global spam problem reports that ISPs blocked or tagged as spam more than 1,000 emails per mailbox in the fourth quarter 2005, and that abusive email accounts for at least four out of every five messages sent.

"MAAWG Email Metrics Program: The Network Operators' Perspective," is the first report by the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group, a San-Francisco based body created to combat spam, viruses, denial-of-service attacks and other online exploitation. The report includes email metrics provided voluntarily by nine MAAWG-member ISPs and network operators worldwide, according to a March 8 press release. The complete report is available from the MAAWG Web site.
