    Just curious to know if anyone else has noticed incoming spam increased a lot this week.
    Starting this past Monday the amount of spam being sent to our domain has pretty much doubled. Filter is working well, but curious to know if anyone else has noticed this.

    Somewhat related, we've been seeing many virus removals come in. I've alone done 6 total in the last 2 days. 2 of them having email flooders on them. Appears that the infections are up this week too. At least up here.

    the holidays are over and the botnets are running at full strength...

    it'll probably diminish slightly as the sys admins of the world start doing their jobs again

    I'm ranging between 8 to 10 k a day right now, which is pretty normal for the domains going through my spam filter

    LOL Funny you say that. I'm back to work and here we go. Spam Spam Go away.

    I haven't seem much increase either, but then again just got back and didn't think much about work while on vacation
