Do You Always Check Your Bulk Folder?

With all the spam coming to us day by day, we're very happy with our bulk folders, I suppose. But I still check that folder regularly to see whether any "friendly" mail has arrived in there. After all, nobody is perfect, and certainly not computers... And every once in while I fish out some mail I certainly should have had in my IN folder! Do you check your bulk regularly? I don't mean after you subscribed to a new program to receive their confirmation, but structuredly??

If I join a new program I always check my bulk mail because many a time my welcome email and passwords etc have gone into the bulk mail secion..so yes most of the time I do then I clear it all away once I have done and dusted anything that I was supposed to keep in my normal folders.

Yes, I do routinely check out my bulk folder. True enough, the computer is dumb enough to include some important emails there. What I do is to screen through and scroll down the list. Move the important emails to my inbox and then completely empty my bulk folder. That's the way it has to go until the CPU has half a human brain.

I will check my bulk email folder whenever I check my inbox, as I have been involved many paying sites online. Many of the mails sent by these sites often go into the Bulk email Folder. I dont want to miss any of the important mails that are moved to Bulk by mistake. Also, there is nothing in checking the Bulk mail folder for a few seconds, before deleting its content.

I often check my bulk folder, because sometimes anti spam filters put good mail into bulk folder; for examples mail containing just images or just links are often considered spam, even if they come from my friends.
