Correction: large^W giant mail systems, that can observe a significant portion of world's mail, and have a lot of R&D resources, do a very good job at fighting spam (in their own systems).

A DIY home mailserver will still let, like, 5-15% of spam emails slip through.




Even with Gmail I still find enough false-positives on spam to make me troll through it daily to make sure important emails don't get sent there.


Gmail does an incredible job.

The last few times I went to spam and saw emails that shouldn't be in there, a careful inspection revealed they were actually very well crafted phishing messages.

Ever since, I don't bother checking the spam folder. Too dangerous. Gmail is smarter than me.


No, legit emails end up there every day for me.


Same, usually newsletter stuff that I don't super care about but still somewhat annoying.
