Unfortunately US still worst spammer

According to Sophos more than one in four (26.4%) of spam detected between April - September originated in the US. South Korea was second with 19.8% and China third with 15.7%.

After these the remainer of the top 10 (in order) were: France, Brazil, Canada, Taiwan, Spain, Japan and the United Kingdom.

We have heard from several non-US ISP's that some US based ISP's are still blocking huge chunks of the Internet in a bid to reduce the amount of spam they receive. Although we would consider blocking entire netblocks is usually very heavy-handed (and often causes more problems than it fixes) it may also be worth focussing on their domestic customers and networks to help reduce the spam problem.
