The state of spam filtering on my work email

April 7, 2006, 7:40 pm

At work, we have “Barracuda Spam Firewall” installed, ostensibly to divert spam from my inbox and into a special place where it can be classified, recorded, and killed. Its performance this week:

  • Number of spam emails Barracuda has trapped and reported to me: 7.
  • Number of spam emails that made it to my inbox: 108.

Is there any particular reason we are still using this software? I don’t think it’s because of its remarkable effectiveness.
