    I have found that Gmail blocks most if not all spam.
    That's also a great point. Outlook SPAM filter is like trying to kill a fly with a shotgun. Most emails that are not from your contacts end up in the Junk folder. Gmail seems to be able to differenciate SPAM from wanted emails better.

    Agreed, Gmail's spam filtering is near perfect. I'd think I was manually filtering it myself.

    Someone at work explained that Gmail's ability to filter spam is at least partially due to its sheer size. If I received a spam email, so did millions of other Gmail users. This helps figure out that it is spam.

    Another advantage Gmail has is Postini. Remember them? Google bought Postini and integrated it into Gmail. The downside is that it is no longer a standalone spam filter. There has never been another like it since.

    I have both. I prefer Outlook but I always seem to have sync issues like losing company names and job titles. That drives me nuts. No issue with Gmail.
