Email at the workplace could be a plague

Unsolicited e-mails continue to plague Europeans and account for between 50 and 80% of all messages sent to mail inboxes, the European Commission said Monday.

EU Media Commissioner Viviane Reding called on EU governments to step up their fight against spam, spyware and other illegal online activities and implement EU rules to improve Internet safety.

An EU report found that only two EU nations — the Netherlands and Finland — were making inroads in enforcing the 2002 law to crack down on spam.

"Spam is still ... making up to between 50 and 80% of the mails that we are receiving in Europe and two-thirds of that is coming from outside the European Union," said EU spokesman Martin Selmayr.
