Fun Fact: (For me) Gmail often marks completely legit emails from
mailing lists as spam and you manually have to mark them as "no spam".
The fun comes in when you notice that actual spam is not marked as
such at all.

Looks like strong encryption is much easier to develop than a decent
spam filter.

The main problem I guess is that neither Google nor any other major
email provider actually block other email providers who do not offer
SPF, SMTP2SMTP encryption or whatever else. If they would do so, we
would have solved most major (email) problems within a week or at
least a month. Either by forcing those to offer these security
features or by "killing" these providers indirectly.
