It would be nice if Gmail could tell me itself…

Follow-up to I have more spam than emails… from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

I don't use Thunderbird; I just use the Gmail web interface. However I'd previously installed Thunderbird just to have a look.

So, using IMAP, I have established that my (currently) 20,333 conversations contain 27,620 emails... which is still less than the spam I get.

The spam comes in at 75,926 for the past 30 days. So I currently have 2.7 spam for every real email...

    2.7 spam for every real email may seem like a lot but when compared against reports that put the amount of spam as a percentage of all email sent as high as 95%, it seems quite low.

  2. But you’ve got to remember that that’s 4 years of emails and 30 days of spam…

    In the past 30 days I’ve received 1,446 email conversations and 72,757 spam conversations. So the spam accounts for about 98.1% of the emails I’ve received…

  3. (Oh, and by “have” I meant literally; at that exact moment, with the number of emails and spam currently in my possession.)
