2,414 new messages.
Almost all of these are SPAM.
I had thought of checking my email while I was away, but when I access my email via webmail, I lose the services of Thunderbird‘s excellent spam filtering – and at 300+ messages per day (on average), that’s just too much mail to weed through on a daily basis through webmail. So I didn’t check my mail at all while I was away.
So that’s 2,414 emails in almost exactly one week.
This spam thing is becoming a HUGE problem!
My new year’s wish this year is for less spam!
p.s. – After Thunderbird downloaded all that mail, it left about 20 messages in my inbox – all of the rest was marked properly as spam and moved to my junk mail folder. Though it did take a few minutes to download all that mail – even over a cable modem connection!
