    Google g-mail is the best at this.

      Yeah, no other email service blocks this much spam and lets through all the other stuff. I've been using gmail for a while and was always impressed at how effective it can be.

        I have tried to host my own E-Mail, but Gmail's spam filters are to die for.

    The amount of spam they get is mind boggling. Just looking at my account and the amount of spam that make sit into my inbox, I can't imagine 99.9% more of that getting blocked. Then to multiple it out by the number of users. Geez.

    I've been using Gmail for over 10 years. In that time, I've probably gotten fewer than a dozen real messages sent to spam and it's very rare that a spam message gets through to be reported. They are doing something very right.

    I have no problems putting my email address in plaintext on a website because I know that Gmail will catch any spam directed at it.

    I believe it 100%. At my job about 93% of our mail is filtered as junk. At a previous role that was much much larger it was closer to 98-99%.

    And google handles mail on a scale that is mind bogglingly larger. Im surprise its not closer to 4 nines instead of 3.

    That's pretty cool. Honestly, I've never had problems with it catching false positives either. Pretty amazing what Google puts together sometimes.

    Yet I continually receive 'spam' calls on my Google Voice number from phone #s that are known scams and come up in Google's own search results as such.

    Can us GV users get some love?
