2018 Filtering Statistics

January 11, 2019

Anti-spam

2018 year is already over and here are some fresh stats of the past year.

Last year our hard working spamsters filtered 350M messages, which is approximately on million messages per day. 162M messages were classified as valid, the ones we sent to your Inboxes and 188M messages we are blocked as spam, unwanted newsletters and virus/phishing mails. Yep, as you can see, the amount of spam (54%) is bigger than valid messages amount (46%) again.

If we look at the monthly chart we can see that the end of the year, especially November and October brought our spamsters the most working months: 20% of all filtered messages were checked during these months. On the other hand, June and July brought us 14 % of filtered messages. Hmm, spammers do like warm water and sandy beaches during summer?

We have also check the reported messages. Theses are the messages you think slipped through and we thought they are valid for you. The amount of these messages is 0.0051% of all filtered messages. The number is lowered a bit from last year’s 0.0054% which we think is pretty good. Now we have a goal for this year 🙂

We hope our service helped you last year and saved you some time in 2018.

We also believe 2019 will be less spammy or more safe in your Inbox 😉

Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
