Google Spam – Part 2

Until recently I had my own mail server running… good old Postfix and dbmail… as I ran out of time (and administration of a mail server simply takes some time), I had to look for another solution. The evaluation showed, that Google Mail is not more expensive than other services like GMX, but I can continue using my own domains and they have the best Web frontend. Also I assumed, that Google might send some spam to other providers (this is part 1 of the story) but not accept spam… I was convinced that Google has the best spam filters in the world… to recongnize spam is related to artificial intelligence and smart alogorithms… like Web search… what shall I say? I’m a Google shareholder and I really like them grow and have success… sometimes, however, I’m very confused:
