Systems like Goodmail suggest that this assumuption is fundamentally
wrong. It puts a little flag on messages that are endorsed by a vouching
service. Webmail providers like it, the issues that Goodmail had with
Yahoo et al were about the implementation, not the idea.
Speaking as a user, I have better things to do than to do the mail
filtering that my mail system can and should be doing. Having talked to a
lot of people who run large mail systems at MAAWG and other places, I
think they agree. They use feedback from Junk buttons to tune the filters
and manage sender reputation, not to do the primary filtering.
