January 6, 2009 – 6:25 PM

According to this eWeek article, Google has been named the #3 spam provider in the world according to the most recent Spamhaus Statistics.

They are stating the reason as “Spammers have had success cracking the CAPTCHA tests and creating Gmail accounts from which to spam. Because the spam comes from a domain reputation systems can’t block because it’s so popular, spam from these accounts has an advantage in getting past many anti-spam systems.”
