    Actually I am now more up to around 300-400 per day and it seems to keep getting worse every week. At least for me funny thing is the volume seems to consistently pick up between 11AM and 8PM with getting 50-60 every two hours and drops off overnight until around 11AM the next day.

    Same as everyone else, my problems came in two waves. Back in May to mid-October, I got a rash of about 20-25 spam e-mails in my junk folder every day, not really a huge problem but I was only getting 3-5 per week before that. Actually started to decrease by October and thought it would go away. But by mid-November the number was back up and has grown consistently to the point of 250-300 every day now. Will have no choice but switch to gmail first of next year.

    As far as e-mail ending up with spammers, I don't know about the accusations of MS giving them out but I had three coincidences with the two wave and wonder if any of them account for this:

    1) Downstairs apartment neighbor has been nothing but a problem and is a techie, I think he may have somehow signed me up to be spammed....he's very passive aggressive, complex is going to refuse to offer him lease extension, and would not put past him.

    2) Three days after I gave my e-mail to Wayfair to notify me if an item became available, I started getting the first wave of spams.

    3) Right after I made a trip to Las Vegas and signed up for the MGM Mlife offering the spam started going up every day.
