I look through my spam folders several times a day. Emails clearly marked spam land in my inbox, Paul, and those that are not spam end up in junk. Go figure.

I have several email accounts.  Always I scroll through the spam and the deleted folders before "emptying the trash".  Every once in a while, something important falls into spam or deleted.

I always check the western shore for Vikings coming to raid the spam!

 

I'll look in them every now and then.  Sometimes good stuff gets blocked, other times not.  The spam messages themselves can be quite fun to look at!  I got to watch the spam change on my personal account when I switched to real estate from IT.  Not a huge change, but noticable.  Still full of lonely russian women selling blue pills and lasik.

At least twice a day...a lot of things end up in spam that should not, especially from agents who use AOL or Yahoo email.
