Yahoo! Mail Data Visualization

Visualized here is what no one has seen before - a near realtime look at the email being processed by Yahoo! It showcases how spam is filtered and email is routed for more than 300 million mail users across the world.


One of the reasons that Yahoo! Mail is the No. 1 email service in America is that for every good email they deliver, they block 4 spam emails. That’s 20.5 billion spam messages a day that aren't slowing down the Internet.


The visualization also takes a look at the top subject line keywords in both good and spam email delivered for all regions, and provides a look at the processing that happens to every email before it's delivered.


Developed entirely in HTML5, it's compatible with all modern browsers and tablet devices. This is the first in a series of visualizations about Yahoo! technology.
