When I signed up to DC I noticed they were going in Spam and were not in with my regular emails and liked that. I was not aware until now that DC was penalized for it.
I have spam filter set to prevent spam form hitting my inbox. I rarely get spam now. I check my ISP mailbox as well as my local spam folder and there's seldom anything there either.

Because my email is used for business, I check my spam folder several times a day. I use Gmail. If something is in spam that shouldn't be, I mark it "not spam", because Gmail's spam filter learns from that. It also learns from marking something "spam" instead of just deleting it.

That's why l like Gmail. It almost reads your mind. Almost. I guess that can have a down side too.

I don't use folders for incoming mail, just for what I've read and need to save to reference later. Yahoo does a pretty good job of sending Spam to a separate spam folder automatically, then deletes messages when they've aged a week. I used to check my Spam folder religiously, but after seeing only offers to reduce my interest rates (um, no loans here) or to make a certain part of my anatomy larger (people, you're aiming for the wrong half of the body!) I rarely give it a look. Hope I haven't missed out on that opportunity to deposit one million dollars from a long-lost relative in Nigeria...

Knowing how bad I am when it comes to computer issues, I am proud to say that I fixed the dilemma with my rule not working to put DC notifications in the Discuss Cooking folder. The reason the rule wouldn't work is because they were not going into my inbox but into my spam folder. I added the "support@discusscooking.com" email into my contacts and now it recognizes them and sends them to my Discuss Cooking folder. I am thrilled!

I'm seeing that the best part of all is that it shows me if there are messages in there before I even click on the folder. In the Spam folder I had to go into it to see if there were messages.
