Spam choking the internet again

`The tide of unwanted email is rising as spammers find new ways to dodge filtering systems, experts say.

A study released in November 2006 by email filtering firm Postini, based in California, US, found that spam now accounts for 91% of all email and that over the past 12 months the daily volume of spam has risen by 120%.

A separate report, from IronPort Systems, also in California, concludes that worldwide spam volumes increased from 31 billion messages daily in October 2005 to 61 billion messages daily in October 2006.’
