We need a two pronged approach. Go after the Spammer AND the advertised product/service.
Companies have to learn that using the Services of a spammer can get expensive!

That's ok for personal use but businesses don't have that option.

Yeah Postini is great but like the other guys said, in businesses it's different. Some on our management receive over 100 spam a day, most caught in the filter but almost always some new ones leaking through at least once a week, though recently it has been much worse. Hopefully it will quiet down now, at least for a little while.

This is great news and may mean my work load is less.

Personally I cannot use gmai for work. I worked at a business and would have to filter trace by javascript: void(0);reply hundreds of emails. every mail to our company is important i cant afford to miss one from a client saying oops sorry i used gmail and it thought u were spam while you were sending us important information. i never even use the internet except for the emailing system and maybe youtube cuz the boss watches it but i still gotta clean up the cookies.

I'm not sure what filtration system IT uses at my company, but I haven't had any spam since I started working here 3 years ago. And I use gmail / hotmail for personal email. Both effectively put spam in the right place. There are occassionally false positives in hotmail so I have to check my spam folder ever week or so.

Why not? My company has been using since its inception and we have moved a number of other enterprises to gmail and google apps.
