Think you've got it bad? Spare a thought for Bill.
Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates is the world's most spammed email recipient.
The (let's face it, not entirely surprising) fact was revealed by Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer, who himself ranks among the top spam recipients.
According to Ballmer, Bill Gates is on the receiving end of 4 million emails every day, the majority of which are spam.
Of course, like many of us, Bill has a number of email addresses, some of which are kept out of the public domain.
Ballmer claims that Microsoft's technology sees to it that only around 10 spam messages get through to Bill's inbox each day - an impressive performance (although Ballmer did not specify which of Bill's inboxes he was talking about).
