Busy weekend for the spammers

I was sick and out of the office on Friday, but this morning I was shocked to discover 40 spam emails in my inbox! After moving them into my ‘SA training folder” I checked my spam folder – 577 emails! wow! Almost half of them were from Thursday night and Friday.
Then I checked my CorkLUG mail queue. 289 emails. Lots of them were viruses, but the majority were spams.
How much personal mail did I get? (outside of mailing lists, automated bug reports, crontab output..) 5 emails.
Add on to that 841 viruses, or 125MB of email caught by my mail server..
