Hi All,

I am interested in understanding the impact of SPAM on other institutions 
(ours is growing to be a major problem despite some technical controls in

Specifically, if anyone was able to answer the following questions that 
would be very appreciated: (I will be sending a summary of responses from 
this and other forums later in the week):

1) Is SPAM a non problem, minor problem or major problem in your 
institution? (perhaps incidcate % of spam received of total email).

2) Is or has your institution actively addressing SPAM in a way that has or 
will substantialy reduce the impact of SPAM?

3) What type of controls (both technical and human) are being used?

Thanks I would really appreciate any feedback on this.
