    I browse it every week or so, often see an unspam email in there.

    I do at random.. when I'm incredibly bored.

    I've never found anything that shouldn't have been there though. google has a good spam system.

    Checking Spam folder is the first thing I usually do when log into my account. My inbox can wait...

    I use an old version of SpamKiller that lets me intercept any spam before it reaches my box, so I do it at least 3-5 times a day, it's a routine :D

    I check it maybe once a month. Never found anything useful there anyway, just the usual viagra/gambling spam.

    Every few days - though most are spam some are actually important things I would have otherwise missed.

    I have too much email and too many things to be constantly checking it. I look it over quickly every couple of weeks or if i'm missing an email that I should have received..

    All the spam mailing lists I sign up for get sent to my spam box. I check them every now and then, occasionally find something interesting.

    I use Mailwasher which picks it up first and highlights it. I set up my own filters with various keywords which will delete them on my mail server before I even see them. Havent seen a viagra or penis enlargement spam for months. Couldn't live without Mailwasher.

    Never check the yahoo or google spam folder, set to auto delete.

    Good point. I stopped using yahoo just because of the insane amount of spam I used to get.

    Here is a question for you guys, how do you filter non-latin emails? I get some crazy Chinese/Asian spam often and I can't stop it from getting to my inbox sometimes (not all the time). I tried randomly adding the kanji in my filters but it doesn't work.

    Don't normally check mine. Do occasionally but never really find any good stuff in there:)
