Well, my Gmail account has found it'* way into the spammers hands. Not too bad yet. The most I've ever seen is about a dozen offers to buy Viagra over an entire weekend. And only 4 of those were from my wife....

not that hard to clean up if your gmail has spam filters and whatnots....just be careful what you sign up for as they sometimes sell your email addy to other companies.

Read their privacy statement thouroughly.

Yep. I like the way Gmail lets you hit one button, and POOF.. They're gone.

For those who might not have gotten it, the "only 4 are from my wife" part was a joke....

That'* quite odd, because IMO I think gmail has one of the best, if not the best, spam filters around. I almost NEVER see any spam, unless I click the spam box, where I get one every five seconds . What you need to do is train it by checking all the spam emails and clicking report spam. That'll work
