I was only away from work for 6 days, and had 334 emails arrive in my absence. Wow, I must be popular! Ya right, after my spam filter had a go at my inbox, 250 of those were classified as spam (from mortgage offers to free phones to viagra ads and much worse). Of the 84 or so that weren’t spam, at least half were weekly mailings from various sources, some important, most not so important. That left me with only 30 or so really important emails that I have to deal with.

For those who suffer the same inbox woes as I do, see the Spambayes project for a very good, configurable and easy to use filter.

Now, back to that inbox…
