Spam Drop!

Normally when I see articles such as this where spam volumes have dropped between 40-75%, my BS meter starts to peg on high. But more articles are coming out stating that 500,000 bots have been bagged.

Surprisingly, we have seen the drop here at the office. We have a store and forward service and we have various statistical tools to serve us a graph of the volume. Check this out!

I didn’t think it would be a big drop, but one of the other admins pointed that out and we have seen it across all of our store and forward and relay servers. Attempts by bots and various other servers to try and send mail through our systems have drastically dropped.

What are you seeing?
