    4 months, and 2 million.

    The article later said that it was one of the biggest spamming attempts in the history of the internet.

    I do 100 000 daily, am I creating a record of sorts?

    I heard on the radio this morning that it was 2 million sent to new zealand only, they dont know how many emails were sent to other countries, but they do know that the operation sent global mails. 2 million emails = half of our entire population. So pretty much everyone who has an email address here got spammed.
