Thanks for the response!
[quote]Gmail allows you to have an alternate from address. (Under Settings > Accounts.)
Yup, I have that, and when people reply to my mail, it is sent to my own domain, but it still shows up as coming from Gmail, which is what I don’t really like. But I like less the amount of spam I get outside of Gmail so I stay on Gmail yet.
[quote]Also, you can use gmail as your mailbox, read messages with POP, but
Hey, then I can get rid of the forwarding rule and POP it instead. Thanks!
[quote]send mail through your domain’s SMTP server.
[quote]Google is testing a version for a whole domain.
Yup, and I applied for that because it would be awesome to have for the entire domain, but I didn’t get a response from them.
[quote]You don’t have to be a super Linux expert to install SpamAssassin,
There are very good and useful guides out there, even directly concerning DreamHost installs, but the thing is that all SA installations would then only be for a specific mailbox, or filtered mail would only go to one mailbox, so it’s not useful for multiple addresses to multiple users.
[quote]sign up with a mail hosting service that can run (SA) for you
DreamHost does that, but not openly tweakable. And we’re even allowed to mess up on our own, so it’s really not a bad service!
[quote]The other tests are too static and easy for spammers to work around.
True. And with something like spam, I’m thinking that having a poor spam filter is worse than having none at all, because you have the cost of handling the quarantine without getting the benefit of a spam-free inbox. Don’t get me wrong, I am, or rather I used to be, fairly happy and impressed with DH Junk Mail filtering, but it just doesn’t fulfil my spam filtering needs now.
