Spam Update – Is there a change for the better?

On October 22, I posted an account of the spam I was receiving. Today, only 58 days later, I have an update that seems to show an encouraging trend.

These reports from Spamarrest shows that in the past 58 days, I have received 3502 spam emails and have received 358 legitimate emails.

The good news is that my spam seems to be dropping off slightly. It has fallen from a high of 100 a day to approximately 60 a day.

The best news of all is that new correspondents seem to be better at handling the challenge-response screening required on their first email.

Is anyone else experiencing a downtrending trend in spam?
