The spamassassin gmail shootout

I’ve seen and heard so many people saying good things about gmail’s spam filter, and yet the few times I’ve redirected some of my (fairly large) mail feed through gmail I’ve not been that impressed. So, Igmail logo decided I’d fire off a test. I forward a good deal of my mail through both my local spamassassin-protected mailbox and to my gmail account and I do some detailed notes about what happens. It’ll be fun.
