I've gotten no more spam lately than before... I probably get 4 to 10 a day,
but it varies. I'm also on lists on Yahoo, Google, and SmartGroups. My
address is all over the internet, due to also posting on newsgroups.

DABF,

I use this address only for mail lists. Up until recently, I received maybe
one or two a WEEK (gmail is very good about putting them in a spam folder)

Since the 'migration', it has gradually grown. I now get in excess of 20 a
DAY! I haven't counted and any time I check mail, I delete contents of that
spam folder.

There has to be a connection, since like I said, all I have here is mail
list postings/replies. Been that way for almost 2 years.

I use other email addresses (I have 5 others) for other things. My yahoo
gets over 100 a day, but with its exposure ... that's almost to be expected,
unfortunately.

It's annoying, to say the least. I believe the migration/new software is
responsible for the 'spike' in spam, since that's the only variable.
