The statistics are based on completely anonymous information and were performed using randomly chosen IP addresses. When connecting to a mail server defined as an MX in the domain configuration, it can reply in a different number of ways. It may not be online, or may be refusing connections. Also, it is possible that the server does not respond back with a "220" line within the period of time we wait, nor provide a banner that identifies the type of the software running on it, at all times.
As indicated in the table below, only 59,209 servers responded out of the total 2,818,895. The statistics below make use only of the information provided by the available servers.
