New Record Incoming Email Quantity
Yesterday we set a new company record for incoming emails. We received 50,060 messages on Feb 21. Of those, 3701 were legitimate emails and the other 46,359 were spam and viruses. Over 19,000 came from one email address: Platinum_Partner_January@newvega.com. Note to spam harvester robots: Please harvest Platinum_Partner_January@newvega.com and spam the bejeezus out of it.
Throughout this barrage, our Barracuda spam firewall allowed a single message from Platinum_Partner_January@newvega.com to come through, and blocked the rest of the 19,000. Barracuda spam firewalls are worth their weight in bandwidth charges.
That is all.
