Hi friends,As we all know in our gmail or yahoo account all the unknown or spam messages goes directly to our spam folder and get deleted automatically within 30 days or period fixed by us.but i use to check my spam folder also and just by reading heading if it's from the site i know then i don't delete it otherwise i delete them without reading if it's any advertisement.So do you read messages in your spam folder of your id?

hi! No, i don't read the messages in my spam box, because i will waste much of my time. in fact i read only their titles, because there can maybe be some important message, which the spam security has redirected to the spam folder

Hi grace. I read spam messages when there is no email to read and I do not read all of them, just have a look on subject area and senders name and read interesting one only.

Same here,i just go through the same steps you mentioned.it saves time and if any important message is delivered in spam folder the we can identify it.

No, it is really a waste of very valuable time to read spam. I delete the whole lot of them. I made the mistake of leaving it for one weekend and when i opened my mail, i had a whopping 330 spam messages. It's really irritating. TATA.

I used to check them..who they were from just in case it went there accidentally. A few years ago I was only checking them randomly every few weeks. But now my email and stuff I do on the computer takes long enough. I have no interest in checking them..I usually just let them sit there until they get automatically deleted. Occasionally I will just give a look but those times are few and far between.

Sometimes I check spam folder in my email account. Some email in spam folder are important and I need to read it. Yeah, sometimes email came from websites I know marked as spam by our email account. After read that email, I move them to my inbox and then I emptied my spam folder

I try and check my spam folder at least once a week. There is always a chance that something important got thrown in there by mistake. The chances are rather slim but it has happened to me before. So I feel that it is a rather good habit to at least skim over the messages every once and for a while. It is a tedious process I admit. And like I said, it only has happened a couple of times where a real important message that has gotten in the spam folder. However, it has happened. I just check through everything and if its from someone I know, it gets read. If not, I just hit the check all and delete all buttons to clear everything out.
