Ballmer has reported that Bill Gates literally receives approximately 4 MILLION pieces of email each day, with the vast majority being spam. Microsoft apparently has a small department established for the sole purpose of filtering and sorting mail for the tech icon:

No wonder MSFT is starting to claim that it's devoted to the elimination of spam. ;)

Hehe yep, I read that. But then again, it could just be a ploy by Bill Gates to generate some publicity for their own anti-spam ID technology, to be released soon.

Don't mean to be a cynic, but what got me suspicious was when in one article, it says Paul Baumer only gets a dozen emails a day, with the rest filtered out by Microsoft's aggressive spam filters. Hmmm, they can do it for Paul but not Billy?
