Unless of course it is the mail letting me know I realllly win'd the 419enlargercheapsoftwaremakeyourwifehappygetyourmortagehere lottery/freexxlg/buyonefreegetone lottery. But since I didn't purchase a ticket I guess I really won't win.
I don't think we can take credit for the lower mail volume today. Your
spam level will likely return to normal soon enough.
The "critical" and "major" IDP tests are generally looking for buffer
overflows and other similar software exploits. The tests would not be
looking at items such as e-mail content. The IDP has enough to do
without tasking it with anti-spam as well.
