(via Slashdot) Story on News.com.au reports that Bill Gates in the most spammed person in the world.

"Bill Gates (is number one) because he is Bill Gates. Bill literally receives four million pieces of email per day, most of it spam," Mr Balmer told a conference.

Think about that-- four million messages a day.    That's 166 thousand per hour or just under 50 emails per second.  Wow.  That is just astonishing.  I'd really be interested to hear what kind of equipment Microsoft maintains to handle that load.
