I'm on gmx.net since long and they frequently give me false positives even with
addresses which I've been receiving for years or seemingly random messages from
this or other mailing lists. Everytime I see those in the daily spam report I
have to log in via their website interface to free them out of the spam folder
to be able to download them with my precious email client. I've recently
started to think this provider *wants* me to have to log in and use the website
with all the horrible ads and articles... and so have been considering, as
recommended by John Hasler, to switch to a paid email service provider, which
I'm gonna do soon.
My two cents...
