Gmail’s antispam doesn’t work

author - malyfred / 2005-12-21

Look at my Gmail inbox… yellow means spam.


All these spams are obvious spams about viagra and loans. What's wrong with antispam on Gmail? It's never worked for me actually:(

This is much worse than my expectations and it forces me to continue using of Opera's Built-in E-mail Client which is very close to perfect but installed on my laptop and not accessible from everywhere as Gmail is.

Dear Gmail's competitors – WHERE ARE YOU?!

    Maybe it is a combined dutch/czech problem. There is one particular doctor that keeps e-mailing me on gmail about my penis….

    gMail’s antispam works just fine for me. Are you sure you havent actually marked one of these as ok at some time? or worse still… maybe the senders have somehow added themselves to your addressbook?

    The reason why spam comes through is by people leaving their email out publicly, such as on this site or even public places such as Craigslist. I did a little test one time. I created 2 new Gmail accounts, and immediately listed something on Craigslist with one of them. Overloaded with spam, and it passed through Gmails filters.

    Don’t leave your email ANYWHERE.
