I got a 500k spam today for printer toner, from Hong Kong.  Most of
it was a Word document.  I didn't bother opening it.  Our limit was
re-set to 150k after we got spam around 120k.  That's probably as
high as we will go.  Spam over 100k is certainly rare.

While I'm writing, here's an interesting new URL obfuscation in
another spam seen today.  We've all seen the gimmick with @.  I've
never seen * before.  The effective URL is what's after the *.
