    That’s what you get for trusting Google 🙂

    GMail’s spam filtering is IME crap. Nowhere even close to as effective as Outlook IMF + SpamBayes.

    Yeah. Unfortunately, i think that GMail has the best web based interface for reading mail. Actually… scratch that. I think it has the best interface (web or client app) for email.

    I am a bit worried about it when things like this happen.

    Frankly I find gmail’s interface crap. The *best* interface for e-mail (bar none) is pine. Outlook 2k3 comes second. Of all the web-based clients I’ve used, OWA in Exchange 2k3 is king of the hill.

    DrPizza: "The *best* interface for e-mail (bar none) is pine."

    On top of that, it’s still me preferred way to read email when i want to make absoltuely sure that there is no spam crap (like tracking images and whatnot) embedded in it.

    Sure the modern email clients all seem to have a good track record when it comes to these issues. But pine *never* had a problem, so i don’t mind sticking with the tried and true.

    I get a lot of false positives with Gmail… but since I don’t get any real spam (it’s a new account), I just go to the spam folder and move everything to the Inbox… :-/

    One thing I’ve often wondered is whether it’d be possible/practical to add pine keystroke bindings to Outlook.
