    According to Spamhaus these are the stats:

    As of 04 September 2012 the world's worst Spam Haven countries for production and export of spam are:


    United States Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 2861
    China Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 1382
    Russian Federation Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 818
    United Kingdom Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 502
    Brazil Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 337
    Ukraine Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 333
    Turkey Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 325
    Germany Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 312
    Italy Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 302
    Japan Number of Current Live Spam Issues: 299

    So heres my question - is it better to avoid these countries to host VPS with to send out mail?

    *** Update -

    I guess I can answer my own question....on the same page it says:

    "Most of the world suffers from the spam problem. However, some countries do little to deter spammers from operating within their borders. These countries become safe havens for the spam operations that plague everyone else, including their own nationals.

    Countries with the highest number of spammers operating within their networks are usually those with poor or non-existent spam laws."

    -------------

    So I guess what is being said is that these stats are only a total of spam - i.e. outgoing mail from these countries is not suspicious. My point is, if you fly back from Colombia there is a higher chance the customs guys gonna stop you - so just b/c you host with one of these countries - it doesn't mean that your mail is more suspicious is it? (That's my point and question with this thread)
