I notice I typically get less than 25 pieces of spam in a given 24-hour period now, nothing like the hundreds I used to get. Only the number of unfiltered crapmail is also the same now, so the hit rate in one filtering system is just 50%, and the other is around 90% over a longer period of time. Even though I get less spam overall, I end up seeing more of it.

Is anybody else seeing a reduction in volume but increase in successful machine deception? Or do I just need to upgrade or retrain some of my software?
