    I hardly get spam on my hotmail anymore... had it for 8 years!! I just 'unsubscribe' to the crap they send! Or put the address on block if they are persistent.

    Wow - my Hotmail is a spam-fest account and only a small portion gets picked up by the filters but my Gmail one does a good job of picking up all the unwanted mail and dumping it in the spam folder. Why does one filter work well and not the other?

    who knows? Do you not think that you shouldn't be getting the spam in the first place though?

    True - but I'm a realist.

    If there are tossers out there that send unsolicited emails relentlessly I want to be able to stop them with an effective filter.

    Re: Can anyone help me...?

    I agree with HBJB that GMail's spam filter is very good - I have very little spam make it to my Inbox and even less genuine email getting flagged as spam. Even when real emails do get junked, 99.9% of them are ones sent to my Yahoo address which routes to my GMail, so I guess the filter has identified that I'm not the listed recipient.

    As for all the mailing lists out there, a good thing to do is buy your own domain - now I have an endless number of throwaway email addresses so have one for each site I use (edugeek@blah.com or whatever), so if an address gets on a spammer's list, I just need to change one address on one website.
