Spam Increase
Thanks to the many readers who have written in.  We have received multiple reports of a big increase in spam traffic overnight.  (Heck, I've noticed it myself)

Mostly non-us based as I have noticed, and ranging from topics old and new such as Stocks, Microsoft Updates, and the nearly-famous 'Nigerean' emails.

As always make sure your users are educated as to the presence of these emails.   It's generally recomended to avoid html email totally. 

Good luck, and welcome back to work .us people!
