I used to manage e-mail filters for our local council. They were "pants". Generally I could spot spam just from the subject line, and for some reason they couldn't.
Almost all the lists I am on have been having recent  issues with things going to SPAM. I think a lot is because of the demise of Yahoo.
... and Microsoft cleaned up Hotmail a long time ago. I seldom see SPAM from Hotmail addresses. GMAIL more often, but most often it appears to be from a compromised windows machine
