I happen to manage a mail server with roughly 6000 accounts on it and my personal email address has been live now for roughly 13 years. I post to technical forums on the net so my address has been harvested a lot throughout the years.
We use a mailfoundry appliance and the spamcop RBL to help combat spam.
Both of these allow spam submissions to help stop new outbreaks.
More and more I am reporting spam to google for gmail accounts. At least
10+ a day. This is stuff that is making it past mailfoundry + spamcop and 2 more RBLS.
I expect google to be better than this at this point. They have the resources and technology.
Data might be data, but spam is annoying!
