Or is it?
Since using Gmail, my account still gets the same amount of spam, but Gmails spam filters are great, and I generally only get 1 or 2 spams a week in my inbox, with the rest going directly the spam folder - sometimes a hundred a day.
The filter is effective whether you are using webmail like I do, or the pop3 server, and I have never had a false positive (good email going to the spam folder).
With Gmail as good as it is, I cant see myself using anything else for the forseeable future.
PM me if you need an invite, or I think you can sign up using a mobile phone now, check www.gmail.com for details.
There are also some nice Firefox extensions that eliminate (hide) all Google advertising from your inbox, but be aware that it doesnt actually stop Gmail from auto-scanning the text of your email to produce ad results, it just hides the output.
