[kwlug-disc] Gmail doesn't see spam?

unsolicited unsolicited at swiz.ca

[Thanks Chris, good to know what I was experiencing wasn't hitting the 
entire list.]

[Thanks Raul, to whom I got back to elsewhere.]

Curiously, since my message, it's stopped. While grateful, it's all 
rather annoying. I'll have to look more deeply into the headers next 
time (I thought I had, which is why I checked with the list).

Huh?

Can you explain?

First, what made you think to mention gmail? (I'm missing the context.)

Second, I thought when Google bought postini, (withdrawing services 
from most non-google vendors? Or rather, most postini customers 
disappearing due to exorbitantly increased costs.) it only applies 
postini to its enterprise/paid gmail clients, excluding the free gmail 
accounts.

Not to say that postini is the only spam tool out there, but I don't 
otherwise understand your statement.
