I'm feeling spammy

Hmm. Since I was given a gmail invite before Christmas, I've used it to send precisely one email, to a work colleague. Nonetheless, I checked my account this evening out of curiosity, and I've already accumulated 36 items in my Spam folder-- still, at least it was all correctly identified I suppose...

Same thing here. Nice thing about the gmail account is not only does the spam go into a separate folder but it'll automatically get deleted after a certain period.

I've had a gmail account for some time with not a single spam. Not that I feel denied, plenty of it gets through the Sun spam filters. I think the spammers are pretty good at auto generated email attempts, <firstname.lastname>@zzz.com <fistnamelastname>@zzz.com firstname_lastname@zzz.com and on and on. Maybe I give them too much credit.
