I am a user of gmail for about 3 months. The only use of this email account is to get all my mailing lists, and there are a lot of them.
I never used this email account on the web and the email i use for the mailing lists is another one that forwards all the emails to gmail.
The last 3 weeks i get about 2-3 spams a day, with a TO: directly to me. The antispam feature of gmail works ok and all the emails are going directly to the spam folder.
When i created the gmail account i wanted to be spam free, but as far i can see the spammers are using all the compinations for usernames to send spam….. To bad for me 🙁
