Gmail's SPAM filtering – Not all it is cracked up to be

You can read all around the web, that Gmail has the best SPAM filtering. I call BS on that. I have been using Windows Live Domains for my email, running through Windows Live Domains, I get to use Windows Live Hotmail for my email. I have been using it for a year at least. I might get 1 spam a day in the junk mail, and none in the inbox.

This week I decided to switch my domain email over to Google Apps (Google Apps for Your Domain – GAFYD) – Now, I get 20+ spam a day in the Spam folder, and 1-2 a day in the inbox.

There is no way Gmail’s spam filter is better than Hotmails. Hotmail stopped more, and stopped more from showing up in the junk folder. Now I have to check my spam folder on Gmail every day to make sure there are no bogus ones in there, and it also lets junk through to the inbox. Not good!

I probably have around 10 more gripes with GAFYD, but I will save those for a later time.
