For all the talks about spam, there are little to no results. Not so long ago, spam represented 36% of all emails circulating on the internet. The current legislation is simply not working and while many technologies are being proposed to stop spam, none is actually in place.
I used to think that spam originates from countries like Russia or South East Asia, but the numbers are here: it’s mainly from the US.
Only AOL claims that spam is going down. AOL says that have seen a 75% decline. The number of AOL email messages went down from 2.1 billion to 1.6 billion. The company claims it’s mainly spam that went away. What about the millions of customers that AOL lost during the last year?
