Just curious - How much spam does your gmail spam box accumulate per day?

I cleaned out my gmail spam box ~ 10am this morning, and its already up to 34.

I do love how well the spam filter works, but that's just crazy.

I just read that when Gmail began, about 25% of email they handled was spam. Now it's up to 75%.

I only get 3 spam messages / week.

The account with my nickname gets a shitton, account with my real name gets negligible to zero.

I got my Gmail account in November 2004.

I get 15-30 per day. But only a handful get into my inbox every month or so.

What is weird is that I created a Yahoo account specifically for registrations and such, and that thing gets 1-3 spam emails a day, and again they rarely get to my inbox (although the Gmail spam filter does seem a little better than Yahoo).

I get about 20-30 spam a day in my spam folder. I get about 1 spam email per month in my main inbox at MOST. It's amazing how incredibly superior gmail's spam filter is compared to Yahoo's.

My oldest mail is 10/28/04 so I guess we are both old timers.:D

I get about 40 spam messages in my spam folder every day, but only 2 or 3 of them in my inbox. Not bad.

I never check/empty my spam folder, which usually has 950-1200 spam messages. Seeing as how Gmail deletes spam over 30 days old, I'd guess I get 30-40 spam email every day.

None. The things in my spam folder are just from some companies that mail too much junk.

I get about 15-20 per day in my spam box. As for my inbox, that varies with the weather...Some days I'll get nothing, other days I'll get 5 or 6.

Not many at all..I'm not sure if I've ever cleared it, and I only have five from the past 30 days.

Nothing in the Spam box, nothing unwanted in the inbox

Yahoo averages 10 per day in each

Mine is 10/03/96. I'm downright ancient. ;)

Gotta love importing old mail.

I dunno. I use pop mail to download mail from my gmail account. The spam account isn't included so I almost never see spam reach Thunderbird. It's great.
