Spam, Spam -- Wonderful Spam?

According to our Information Technology Department here at the City of Troy (the Library is a department of the City), in a typical week, the City receives 234,251 spam emails. Our spam-blocking software stops 93% of the emails, but that still leaves over 14,000 that get delivered.

That's 88 spam emails per hour, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, spread over 600+ Troy email accounts.

That's a lot of spam!
