Do you check your spam folder? How often?

Do you check your spam folder? How often?

  1. I look in my spam folder one or more times every day.

    22.2%
  2. I look in my spam folder regularly, maybe weekly-ish, but not every day.

    25.9%
  3. I rarely look in my spam folder but not "never."

    37.0%
  4. I never check my spam folder AND/OR delete the contents regularly without ever looking.

    14.8%

    I often find some important emails in my Spam folder. Gmail, outlook and yahoo spam filters
    are very strict so in order not to miss some important stuff I check my spam folder about 3 times
    a week. How about you? This poll should be helpful in email marketing statistics, at list for me.
    Thanks for your vote.

    I have Local spam folder turned off and a third party spam filter / quarantine.

    Then I get a daily quarantine report which I check through.

    So basically the spam that hits my inbox is very close to zero, then the spam just comes in as a single report.

    I only check if I think I'm missing something. Then I realise I'm not missing something, and some c***s actually take months to do a basic task.

    Rarely, but only when I’m bored.

    Usually filled with bs from my ex. and a good reminder why I left the [email protected]$&.

    Done that many times. My preference would be to not have to deal with her at all, but when children are involved...

    Anyways, I’m starting to drift way off topic, so I will leave it at this.

    I check it everyday. Usually get about 10 emails in that folder. A quick glance and "delete all".

    I will check every day, it has become a regular practise. Don't know when I picked it up.

    No important stuff will be there though.

    Typically once a week if that. Maybe a few times a week if I'm expecting an email.
