Nine of 10 e-mails are spam

May 4th, 2008 - 1:18 pm ICT by admin  

Mainz (Germany), May 4 (DPA) Most daily e-mails are not sent between friends or even business partners. Instead, 92 percent of e-mails sent between January and March 2008 were spam. This was revealed by Sophos, a Mainz-based information technology security firm that regularly monitors internet mail.

The United States remains the world champion when it comes to spam as more than 15 percent originated there, the firm said.

Sophos, however, did not track the number of spams actually reaching the mailboxes of internet users.
