Dan Field is the Managing Director of ClearMyMail and talking about the
research he said,
“These are some worrying statistics and I admit I was shocked when I saw some
the names in the top 10 ISP’s who seem to take little or no action when it
comes to preventing spam and even more shocked to see that the UK is still the
second biggest source of spam emails received here”.
“There is little doubt in my mind that ISP’s, anti-spam and anti-virus
providers need to get together to see what can be done to eliminate the time
consuming and frustrating spam emails that are increasing in numbers”.
