Mine got to 200 and I just couldn't be bothered to mark the crap as spam so I just made a new account. :(

I have unreliable figures at the moment because I have Amavis discarding anything that SpamAssassin gives over 15 spam points... but I still get around 120 spams a day to my personal address, and about the same for my "work" address.

So bloody frustrating!

Nearly up to 4,000 :?

A very good reason not to get a Gmail account.  But I do need a new free email account soon.  Any suggestions?

Er, actually it's a very good reason FOR one!  I'm not getting the spam *because* I have a gmail account, the gmail software is just very good at seperating the spam from my inbox.  If I didn't have gmail - those 4,000 spams would be in my normal mail.

Most of the spam is actually to addresses at AE - you can send email to anything (at) aussieexotics.com and it will come to me via gmail.  I just had a look and there are dozens of random adresses, "rong" and "gustav" and "rubens", then of course there's a bunch to standard addresses like webmaster/admin/etc.

So - I'd definitely recommend it, it's great and easy for organising all the legit email I get too.
