I've been hearing from a few people that they are seeing more spam in their email lately. My own email over the last week's running 48% spam, up noticeably since last month.

Anyone else seeing a change? If so, who is your email handled by? ISP? WebHost? Gmail? Yahoo? etc?

Thanks.

I use gmail. I just went into the place marked "spam" on my e-mail page. There were 260 spam messages since August 1. I don't know if that's more than usual since I don't look at that section often. Seems like a lot, though.

Nor me. I have had to junk a Gmail account due to malware, but other than that, my filters are pretty much the same. I do see a slight increase with these Browser games though.

I pretty much just get what I sign up for. I use yahoo for all my email and it's, typically, pretty good about filtering spam out.
