Is Bill Gates most spammed in world?

Filed under
Misc

As you go through your e-mail trying to separate the good stuff from the spam, reflect that Bill Gates gets about 4 million spam messages a day.

But then, as Microsoft co-founder Steve Ballmer said at a company event in Singapore, Gates has a lot of help in dealing with his e-mail.

"Literally there`s a whole department almost that takes care of it," he said.

Ballmer said he also gets a lot of spam, the BBC reported, at least partly because he gives out his e-mail address in every speech. But he said his filters are so good that only about 10 pieces of spam a day get through the net into his Inbox.
