    If 95% of yours are, then what my percentage? Surely not 100% :o

    I get about 180 e-mails a day, usually 2-3 of them are genuine e-mails for me from people or companies I know that should have been sent to me. Granted it's a "catch all" account for 2 domains but it's still an obscene amount. Thankfully Thunderbird filters it correctly 99% of the time :D

    My work account is 99% work related.

    My private account is 100% chit chat and crap.

    It's sad but very likely true. I don't really see the point of it though - it's not like anyone opens spam these days and goes "oooh look, a random person wants to send me some money, my lucky day has come at last!!!".

    I get a good chuckle from some of it though. If I'm bored I just go through the spam box and read some of it, some of the stuff you get it really strange.
