My current e-mail address has been active since 2002 and about 95% of the e-mail that is sent to it is spam. It's usually between 50 and 60 a day. Thankfully, I use a really good spam filtering service (SpamHero) that does a phenomenal job at keeping it out. I get maybe one or two spam messages in my actual inbox a month and no false positives. However, the spam count I used to get a few years ago was sometimes in the 100-200 per day range so the amount of it going out has definitely decreased.

I used get spam in the early days of the net, like early 90's.

I receive about 5% spam, most of which is filtered away.

I use white-listed email aliases, creating a new one each time I sign up somewhere new. If one of these start getting spammed, I kill that alias and that's the end of that. This also means I know who leaked my address - Sega and Atari, for example, have both leaked as the addresses I created just for my accounts with them started getting junk.
