June 2016 in Spamtraps: ESPs
Long overdue – summer holidays and all that, but here we go.
The percentage of ESP sent mail vs all mail seen in the spamtraps keeps growing, 2.4%. The amount of ESP mail was 2% lower than last month, but the total amount of mail was down 8%. I’m no longer paying attention to social networks as it’s pointless – the point has been made.

Here’s the “relative badness” graph, a little easier to read now that the Topica outlier is gone.
Finally, the “top spamming customers” table.
