    So, any reports on how well Tiger Mail filters spam? It's seeming less and less effective here in Panther. Anyone noticed any improvement with the new version? If there's a substantial improvement, that might push me over the edge in terms of adopting Tiger.

    So far, this feature seems to me about like it was in 10.3.9...except that, subjectively, it seems like there are some cases where Mail refused to pick up on patterns before, and is starting to now. So I'm not sure yet. There are no obvious new features, and it isn't obviously drastically better to me, but it seems like it might be learning tricks the old dog was never able to....

    I haven't had problems with the mail app and spam for a while, but that's probable cos I don't have much spam!

    Well, that's an improvement on my current situation. You're suggesting Mail in Tiger is getting better and better at finding spam. With 10.3.9 my computer seems to be getting worse and worse at it.

    Does anyone think spam will stop when law enforcement is harder on them?
