it's not even remotely close to 1 or 2%. not even 1 in a million.
i get really sick and tired of hearing whines from losers who think that
their email is so important that everyone else MUST accept millions of
spams from dynamic addresses just on the off-chance that they might one
day want to send you a mail.
if their mail is that important, then WTF don't they set up (or
rent) a smart-host with a static IP? it's cheap, it's easy, and the
virtual server or co-lo costs can be shared with others (i.e. form a
co-operative to pay for a mail server configured for SMTP Auth). if it's
not important enough for them to bother doing that, why should anyone
else consider it important enough to accept a deluge of spam and virus
