If found that GMail indeed does pretty good with spams. If they have the algorithm to filter out link farms and bogus spam sites, they must be able to spam my emails too.
Anyway here’s some simple steps for using gmail to filter spam and save your email server some bandwidth and the skip the painful steps of installing SpamAssasin
1) Get some coffee.
2) Get a GMail account first (if you don’t have one yet)
3) Go to your GMail homepage
4) Setup the POP settings. Set it to “Archive Gmail’s copy”.
5) Add ALL your emails like shown below:
6) Next if you use a client email software such as MS Outlook, Thunderbird, follow these directions and setup your email client to download new emails from gmail.
7) Now you get GMail spam-filtered email in your email client. You can always check your web browser Gmail for archive of all your email in the future.
8) If you have a PDA, set that up too and you get spam-free emails on the go.
HINT: If you can’t set the port number on your PDA, use “pop.gmail.com:995” and “smtp.gmail.com:465” for your sending and receiving servers.
