I've seen very litle e-mail spam, in general, having pretty reasonable captures in place. Not much gets through to my inbox, so it's hard for me to say whether it has tailed off.
I have never understood those that buy from e-mail spam. Surely, their inbox must be overloaded as they eagerly wait the next spam e-mail batch. No, it makes no sense.
Perhaps folks have finally realised not to buy from spam e-mails and have therefore destroyed the market.
I have noticed the e-mail harvesters have become more sophisticated and seem to be finding unpublished e-mail addresses from places that they should not have been able to scrape from. I have no hard evidence for certain that one place in particular has been scraped, however, it does make me wonder where they got an unpublished e-mail address.
