I can't help but notice that the link about .Mac doing server side spam filtering was last updated in 2004. I've received an awful lot of spam since then, and am sure that the tactics of the spammers have changed significantly since then.

At this point, Apple's server side spam filtering is so pathetic that they'd be better off just saying that they don't do it as an effort to at least save face in that arena.

Again, I'm passionate about this, because it along with the inability to edit my calendars on the web were two factors that drove me out...

    It's possible .Macs filtering was ok for me because I only gave out my email to friends and never received a spam message for almost 4 years. Only in the last couple months have I started to get them. Of course, once your address is out there, there's not stopping it so spam could become a big problem for me this year. I rarely see spam make it into my gmail box. I agree with the Calendering. While google lets you import is there any way to keep Apple's iCal or Apple's Address book always in sync with google? This would solve my Treo syncing problem and I could use this years .Mac subscription to start a transition.
