    Important question (really), for my marketing class. Just an estimate, and do you look at all of them before you delete?

    I get about 280 e-mails in a 7 day week. Thing is, literally like 275 of those are junk/spam emails and I delete them all without reading.

    I'd guesstimate about 300 per week, but at least 100 of those are spam/junk.

    Work email - 60 to 70 per day. yes I look @ all of them
    Home email - about 250 per week. I look @ about 25% the rest or filtered through junk email or my rules filter.

    Hard to say, i guess... Today i got 4 emails not including junkmail; yesterday i received in excess of 30... i have 7 AOL screen names, 5 of which get email just about everyday; i have two Yahoo! email accounts as well as two 411.com email accounts... Also have three work-related email accounts- two of which are barron as i never give them out and the third is for the entire office; only a fraction of the emails sent to that account are for me...

    Work related: about 100+ per week. Non work: about 20 - 30 per week. Spam: 1000 per week. I don't read the spam. I've been getting about 2, 3 ferrarichat emails per week also.

    I get about 150 e-mails a week. My mail spam filter is really good, so I only get about 10 spam messages a week.

    My good (college account) i get probably 20 a week, mostly from professors, campus announcements, or from brothers in my fraternity that hit the "reply to all" button on purpose and then rile everyone else in the brotherhood (all junkmail :) ) I get total of ZERO spam emails to that addybecause i protect that one. My Hotmail account is the exact opposite. Thats the one i use to register for forums, etc. I would say i get 150 junk emails a week to that one.

    I used to receive @1000 weekly.

    BUT

    Y'all need to change your options settings by making sure boxes are unchecked in certain areas.
    You'll find spam will disappear. I know mine did on my 4 email accounts, all from different services:
    Earthlink, Hotmail, Lycos, Opera.

    Incidentally, while each of the 4 accounts have different recipient names, only one (1) has a numeral in the name. Again, each account used to get flooded with junk/spam.

    To answer the question:
    02 = Earthlink
    03 = Hotmail
    12 = Lycos
    02 = Opera
    19 = Total Weekly

    No spam is good spam

    Ooo, fun topic...

    Work: 20-40 emails a day all work related. Not much crap, usually I have an action item on more than half.

    Home/FerrariChat.com: 75-125 a day total. 20 junk email, 10-20 personal not relating to FC, and the others are all FC related...

    Why can't I log in?
    Why can't I see pictures or post? (a new favorite with the new software).
    Reported posts.
    Can you edit my post for me?
    Why did my post count start at 0? (another new favorite with the new software).
    How do I edit my profile?
    Why do I get an error that my picture is too large?
    I deal in drugs and prostitutes, can I advertise on FerrariChat.com? ;)
    Thanks Rob!
    **** you Rob! :D

    Rob- I see you got my e-mail, so how about it? When can I start advertising? ;)

    I get about 50 real e-mails/day to my combined box (work/pleasure/stuff) from all my different accounts and domains.

    Well, 150 a day counting all my buisness in Nigeria.


    I've had to tweak the hell out of SPAMASSASSIN, but it works very well now. It's bouncing in the range of 5 spams PER SECOND and it does so with the connection live.

    Go ahead, here's my address. ben@dreamns.com send me something absolutely obscene and see if it dosen't come back right at you! Punks!

    PS: don't keep going, if I detect more than 5 SPAMs per hour, theconnections stay open and start to waste resources on your side. Muwahahahha!

    Best!
    Ben.

    I remember Marketing class! All 8 of them.

    I get about 70 work emails a day, and read 70% of them. 15% I file away for future, 15% delete.

    I get about 15 a day on my primary personal account, 10 are spam. I don't read spam. I will admit to being curious about Bruces penis patch.
