Too Much Spam

spam chart

Blue = blocked (rate control)
Red = blocked (spam)
Green = allowed

Our filter tells us that most of our incoming mail is spam. Though I am happy to have a spam appliance (from Barracuda), the overall increase in spam volume leads to a corresponding increase in false negatives. Users start receiving several spam messages each day, reminiscent of a few years ago when that is all the spam that existed. It is a shame that we have not been able to pass effective anti-spam legislation to thwart this problem.
