For Nov. '05, 6645 emails scored at 5 or higher in SpamAssassin, out of
20944 total. That compares with about 2800 emails to -hackers and

For Dec. '05, 6723 spams out of 20186 (~2500 -hackers and -general).

That's relying soley on SpamAssassin to flag spams, btw. Luckily on only
gat about 10 spams a day leaking through, although I do send anything
scoring >= 3 and < 5 to a 'probabably spam' folder, which helps quite a
bit (I don't really consider those as 'leaking through').
