Since the middle of March I’ve been saving the spam file that SpamAssassin writes to. Here are the latest statistics I’ve culled from it:
|Instance of:||As of 05/05||As of 06/04||As of 07/01||As of 07/28|
|Avg. no. of spam/day:||210||267||n/a||513|
|Size of ‘caughtspam’ file:||58 MB||108.8 MB||158.2 MB||232.9 MB|

The statistics above show that since the middle of March I’ve received over 43,000 pieces of email that SpamAssassin has markes as spam. The number of spam received has risen from about 200 per day to about 500 per day in just four months.
