This does not neccesarily apply to gmail but I am using it as my example because it is really good at filtering out 99.95% of the spam automatically into a seperate folder. About 4 months ago I went to one of the free iPod/xbox/psp sites and entered in my info. After that I started getting quite a bit of spam mail from various sources. I would usually go in and delete it but then realized that Gmail deletes it after 30 days anyway. I decided to let it go and see how much carp I would get in a month.If you can't see the image for some reason that number is 4638...(Keep in mind that all this came from signing up on one website.) Any one else have similar stories?
