    My main account is Gmail which is great in filtering spam. I get anything from 2-5 a day and very rarely it is inaccurate. I only check the spam folder if I'm expecting an important mail, just in case, although in many years Gmail has never mistakenly spammed anything important.

    Some on public account. Very few on private. Virtually all of them are filtered by my webmail provider.

    Consider yourself lucky, my gmail puts important emails to spam all the time. Just because I delete it without reading (like bills), it decides, that it is a spam.

    I have more than 1600 mails listed with Gmail, and hardly ever (may be once in more than 3 years) I've noticed a good mail in the spam folder. I do delete a lot of mails without reading them too, and they are not automatically spammed unless I do it myself. Luck doesn't really apply in my situation.

    Voted none / day, although I do receive <2 / month (and they're all appropriately filtered).
    Years ago I used to get many dozens / day. I attribute the reason to:
    1) Arrests of many top spammers.
    2) I'm a lot smarter now regarding who I submit email addresses to.

    Does anybody know if there's any way to block ebay sellers getting your email? I guess they need it? I notice more and more that I get unwanted newsletters from people I have bought items off from ebay saying you are receiving this because you subscribed to our newsletter but I don't recall ever giving them permission. I had a quick glance through the settings but can't see anything..

    none on gmail

    if you are getting spam

    set up a gmail account (5mins)

    and add your email to it so it routes through gmail (takes 5mins)

    instant email no spam.

    I check another email through gmail, it used to be really spammy, now gmail cleans it

    I have had my MSN email since 2005. I sometimes get 2 or 3 spam emails and I give my email out all to much. All of the sites I visit are linked to it. I have used gmail before and I just never have liked it. Aol mail use to be my favorite.
