May I be the first to complement Kati on a very well put together poll, which really covered all the eventualities, especially those of the Monty Python lovers
Ive been using hotmail as my primary mail account for ages, and recently their spam filters have become very good, resulting in most of my "spam" being newsletters i have
subscribed to long time ago, but are no longer interested in. Ive unsubscribed from some of them, but some just refuse to stop coming (e.g the hewlett packard critical update newsletter).
In short, however, recently spam has not been a problem at all (which is a pity, as Ive been enjoying the game of creating regex to catch them without killing all my other mail with MailWasher Pro).
