Re: spam filter ?
- As an OS-X user actually using Mail.app, maybe I can contribute a
little confusion to this topic :-)

(Of course the real solution would be a pair of pliers and that CD with
all the spammers REAL addresses... *evil grin*)

from people in my addressbook (which might be why I see so much junk
from this list) but:
a: it works fairly well... about 2 get through per day, plus 5-10 on
the vim list
b: I haven't had a false positive yet (at least, never when I bothered
c: the spam I get from this list always appears empty for me - no
attatchments and just a couple of words ('your document' etc)
d: the amount of spam that gets through to my work address (exchange
2003 server, MacOS-9 outlook) leaves my private account for dead -
there's normally about 30 - 50 spams waiting for me to delete each
morning :-( So much for professional services that people pay good
Is anyone else using Mail.app's spam filtering? Goood/bad experiences?
