Spam email statistics

Symantec’s State of Spam report makes fascinating reading.

Did you realise that during a typical day in August 2010, around 200 billion spam emails were sent? In a single day!

I didn’t.

Apparently there is now reason to be optimistic, as the volume of spam over the past month (December 2010) has been hovering around 70 billion spam emails per day.

More about it on Symantec’s blog.
