How much is spam costing me let me tell you
OH how do I hate spam, to the point that I'm on a warpath.
this is todays catch
over 1000 emails rejected using a filter ( so there was no data to the mail server )
150+ made it over the filter with a gross mail server disk space cost 4 megs
if I would have no filters the e-mails would have cost in server space around 20 to 30 megs. that was just for me.
now I would like to advise all mail server operators. I placed the filter for the entire mail server handling about 1500 domains ( about 6000 e-mail address ), the MTRG has dropped over 60% and since I buy at 95th% this is wonderful. The datacenter states that my savings will be about 20% -30% this month and next month about 40% to 60%.
this adds up to savings for my clients. and reduced pop3 time for the server.
long term win in my case for sure. I would ask that everyone check to see if they are on spews. and if they are to start fighting with there upstream.
Spam hater, and lover of the spews list. Keep the internet clean
