It's never worked as well as the filters my ISP uses; it makes more errors in both directions.Post a Comment
It was awful for many months after gmail launched, then since then it waxes and wanes. It has been quite bad lately. I expect spammers find ways around it and Google keeps tweaking things.
I'd prefer they simply license what my ISP uses, but that may not scale to their size.
In contrast, Yahoo's filter is excellent.
I get a huge volume of spam do the way my mail flows into Gmail, so I've gotten a better sense of this than most. (My very old email addresses redirect into Gmail.)
