I agree that the fine is low - the crime in my eyes is that in the case of
real email addresses (like mine) the recipient has to pay for the junk
I'm just curious about Docomo's claim about how much they actually lose on
"user not found".
880 million * 1.2yen = 1.05Billion yen/day due to non-existant email
addresses? Why - they don't need to send it out over their network as
they do with real mail. I'm wondering if they aren't exagerating somehow,
or claiming "loss" due to the fact that non-existant users wont pay them
for the mail that Docomo wont pass to them anyways.
(In either case it's good news that Docomo's actually upset about spam,
for whatever reason. I doubt it would bother them much if the spammers
could restrict themselves to real users - each of who pays Docomo for the
benefit of recieving unwanted mail.)
I also think it is low, of the just under a billion emails send each day,
880 million are to non-existent addresses....
that sounds expensive.
