Yahoo Spam/Bulk Folder

Postby chadlincoln » Thu Jul 20, 2006 2:35 pm

So I turned off the auto-delete function for my bulk folder just to see how much spam I really do get. 117 over night. 8-o

Normally I don't see those. I was just curious to see if Yahoo filtered it well or if I just don't get spam (ya, right). Try it for a night. See how much you get.

there's an auto delete function? I gotta turn it on. I have 350 spams in there now.

May I suggest Gmail?

I'd be happy to send someone an invite. I got it when it first came out 2 years ago and I haven't looked back...

maybe I should switch, I have a gmail account(when it was actually hard to get gmail invites) that I never uses. :-?

But I don't see anything wrong with yahoo though?

Same here. I use it as a secondary account to my comcast one, but it's much better than any other web based emails I have seen. I can also invite anyone if they want it.

I really love that i don't have to delete anything; you'd be surprised how helpful it is to do a quick search of an email you got months ago. I also don't get any spam because I've been careful to use a dummy email address anytime I sign up for something (another Gmail address actually that I forward to my main one; although spam still goes to the dummy addresses spam folder).

It's pretty awesome. The new calendar is sweet too.
