Spam, spam, spam, eggs, spam, baked beans and spam

Ah, email. Scourge of the known galaxy.
New job (very part-time), new IT account, new installation of that fecking Microsoft Outlook. But although Outlook's spam filters would fail to detect a Viking waving an entire spiced pig over his head, Outlook is not actually the target of my current grumble.

Between the time the IT-responsible person had created my new email address and the time she had stood up, walked downstairs, checked the spare computers and logged me into one of them, I had my first piece of spam email waiting for me. 

It took about three minutes from blank to spam. This actually makes my fairly modest count in the GMail address I've had for five years now, look highly impressive.
