The amount of junk e-mail being sent across the globe has seen a dramatic fall in recent months.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12126880
The volume of spam has dropped steadily since August, but the Christmas period saw a precipitous decline.
One security firm detected around 200 billion spam messages being sent each day in August, but just 50 billion in December.

[edit reason] added quote [/edit]
it does make me wonder where they got an unpublished e-mail address
often times harvested from mail client files of someone's compromised computer
but, these are unpublished e-mail addresses.
How do they define spam?
I have never understood those that buy from e-mail spam.
I once witnessed a fellow fall for a lottery scam, all but certain that his investment would pay off big.
