Nearly 95 percent of all e-mail is spam?

Well, that’s what Barracuda Networks says. It’s not impossible that the report’s numbers could be skewed: the company’s phone number is 1-888-ANTI-SPAM.

Barracuda Networks, Inc., the worldwide leader in email and Web security appliances, released its annual spam report today. The findings included: 1) The majority of business professionals view spam email as the worst form of junk advertising – worse than postal junk mail and telemarketing calls, and 2) spam email accounted for 90 to 95 percent of all email in 2007, up from an estimated five percent of email in 2001.

How much of your e-mail is spam? How big of a pain in the ass is it? Oddly, I don’t have a whole lot of trouble with it; I suppose my server has an ass-kicking anti-spam module.
