It would seem that Google's perfect system already exists in Gmail. I've been using Gmail since it started in 2005. As of today I have over 50,000 archived emails. When I first started Gmail, I would get a couple of spam emails a month in my inbox and immediately report them as spam using the dedicated button. In the past 3 years, spam emails in my inbox have completely disappeared. They still accumulate by the hundreds in my spam folder, but I never get them in my inbox. Thanks to their reporting system, a minority of Gmail users provide cross-referenced data that allows the spam to be identified and properly categorized plus whatever else Google uses. I believe there was a white paper on their anti-spam technology a couple years ago showing their techniques. In contrast, I have an old GMX.de free email account that is now nothing but hundreds of spam emails a month in the inbox.
