2005 spam in review

Now that the year is over we can review the mail that was sent to my Yahoo account. From June to December I received 2,029 emails. Of those 1,017 were legit and 59 were phishing attempts. Of the spam 651 were porn messages. In December there was a resurgence of spams with 13 phishing emails in the four days before Christmas. Did the U.S. Can-spam act work? To some extent it may have, but, a full 50% of my messages are still spam.
