    Fixed :bigthumb:

    The problem is I don't like posting my (so far almost spam free) gmail account all over the net.

    Google uses the Bayesian algorithm to filter spam, which was probably the best method in filtering spam in e-mail (yes, even better than spamassassin), which is the same method used by many other places as well (And spamassasin is the solution for much larger businesses as well). It makes it not much different than some of the other webmail that you use. Gmail just utilizes nifty little AJAX effects to catch your eye better (w/ better functionality as well) than other webmail. Microsoft is currently implimenting Sender_ID, which WILL probably be the next best method in filtering spam. Soon after, yahoo will probably jump on the bandwagon, and there also has been talk that Google may catch onto it as well.

    And it does matter, because spam is spam, and there is always ways around it, especially when a spammer knows the internal workings of the Bayesian filters and spamasassin point system.

    I'm sure he's not just going to post his Gmail contact for spam, but to avoid OTers contacting them requesting weird shit. :hsugh:

    Amazing or not, it get very little spam and I really want to keep it that way. Plus, I do have to occasionally look through the spam folder to see if any real email was caught. That's a lot easier to do with 5 messages in it than it is with 5000 in it.

    And for the record, Sender ID will probably be implimented on top of Bayesian filters and Spamassassin as well. Sender ID will become an industry standard. MSN already has implimented it, and absolutely ALL e-mails will go into the junk mail if the e-mail server you're sending e-mails from does not have a Sender ID. I also just heard Yahoo will be implimenting it very soon. And definatly Google will since they will nto be able to send e-mails to Yahoo or MSN if they do not have Sender ID.

    Just some thought.
