Whenever I check my mail, I check my junk or bulk folder. Because many time it happens that my important mail also come to that folder. Why it happens I don't know. So, I make sure to check my bulk folder. Otherwise I can miss some important mail. What about you? Do you check it regularly or you ignore it?

My goodness I never check it and I just had a quick glance there when you mentioned it and realised that I have 10,000 e-mails in it. *blush*. I've just deleted them all.

I have to check it every day or else some of mylot mail goes in there. I don't get it, most goes to the in box, but every now again, I will get a "New Message Posted Notify" in the bulk mail. :-( I reckon it's like 1 in every 15. Strange.

I check my junkmail as often as I check my inbox. For some odd reason, most of my spam goes into my inbox while the mail I need goes into my junkmail folder. I think hotmail hates me.

I do the same. I don't like to ignore it incase something important has been sent there by accident which often happens. I also don't like to see it building up, it makes me feel untidy lol.

Regularly. I'm always online, so I get the habit of cleaning my bulk mail, morning, noon and right before i log-out from work.

I check my junk mail at least once a day because sometimes a good email will go there and I need to retrieve it back to my inbox. I try to put important emails on my "safe list" but every now and then one of them ends up in the junk folder.

Hello again SweetLady I have my email set to check every 15 minutes. I have a home office and my business is online so I check frequently for contacts from my clients. Sometimes their messages end up in the junk. It's strange because they may go for weeks and nothing goes in the junk but then one day one or two will. So every time I check my email I also check the junk and delete and then clean it out.

I have to check it everyday. So many of my good emails get sent to that one. And the junk email eats up my allowed MB, so I check it daily and clean it out. I just wish if I mark it as spam, which I do, that it would not show back up the next day.

Like you I check my bulk/junk mail folders regularly. It can happen that someone you know has changed their email address (maybe cos they were getting too much spam LOL) and are dropping you an email to let you know their new address and it ends up in the bulk/junk mail folder as my inbox is set to only receive emails from people in my address book. That is on my main hotmail account but in my yahoo email accounts, I tend to skim through them very quickly as I receive LOTS of junk mail in there and I never give out my yahoo email to people anyway, mostly it's for things like competition entries... :)

I check my junk mail folder every day, and often several times a day. I have my junk mail protection set to high, and if I don't check it every day, sometimes the emails that really matter will get put in the junk mail folder and I won't get them.

I always check my bulk folder regularly, it happen to me also that some important mails comes from my bulk folder, but its just annoying to check because its more on deleting than reading the mails. Anyway, there is gold in thrash.
