2011 Spam

In 2011 I saw a dramatic reduction in my daily spam e-mail volume, just 21,744 messages, down from 63,436 in 2010. Seems as though the takedown of the Rustock botnet was the major reason for the reduction as seen in the graph below. 60 spam messages a day is manageable, especially when I only deal with them once a day when I get the report from Postini. A few false positives and false negatives but compared to years past of 240 spam messages a day I'm much happier.
