    About 1 every minute given that a fair number of my emails have at some point been published on the web. I see spam show up from strange places from whois records and other sources.

    We use spamassasin on the server, which does a VERY decent job in blocking spam. Far more effective than the crap MSN and Yahoo have. Gmail seems to work a lot better.

    I'm pretty aware of what the latest viruses are and have yet to see anything majorly destructive for a symbian based phone. All bluetooth and other connectivity is turned off.

    I am considering a 6415 HP iPaq and thats when my stress levels would be higher, given that it is a windows CE device and it has every forum of connectivity out there.
