Big Surprise: Can-Spam can’t stop Spam

Can-Spam Act Can’t Can Spam:

A month after the federal Can-Spam Act went into effect, most anti-spam vendors say that the new legislation hasn’t cut down on the glut of junk mail in users’ in-boxes.

According to numbers released this week by Brightmail, Postini, and Commtouch, three providers of message-filtering and anti-spam solutions, the amount of spam they’ve intercepted since the law took effect on Jan. 1 has increased, went unchanged, or fallen by an insignificant amount.

OK, not really a surprise…
