The amount of detected spam jumped from typical 800,000 a day to 3,600,000 yesterday, and it is continuing at the higher level today. The volume causes processing delays at random moments on messages coming in from outside. Other than that, the system is holding up well.
The amount of undetected (delivered) spam is also a little higher, and we will fine tune filters to stop more of it. The spam is for drugs.
