METRICS: Nearly Two-Thirds of All April E-Mail Is Spam

In April, nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of e-mails sent were spam. Messages in the product (23 percent of spam messages) and financial (18 percent) categories ranked the highest, although both categories declined slightly from March 2004 levels. Health messages showed the most growth, increasing two percentage points (from 7 percent to 9 percent). SOURCE: Brightmail
