Thanks to the Gmail anti-spam engineers and the feedback they receive from their users, friends, and colleagues, the spam situation on Google's e-mail service is improving. As most e-mail providers do, Gmail offers a "Report Spam" button that informs the company which e-mails do not deserve placement in the user's inbox. Not only is more spam being placed in the appropriate folder, but it appears that spammers are getting discouraged. According to the anti-spam team over at Google, attempts to spam Gmail users have been levelling off over the last year and more recently, are even declining slightly. It's too bad no numbers were actually given, seeing as for all we know Gmail accounts could be getting the most spam of all, but regardless this is excellent news for all the Gmail users out there!
