View Full Version : Yahoo! mail bulk folder

I always peruse the bulk mail for a winning notification. Sometimes sweeps entry verifications wind up in there, so I figured it's the safe thing to do.
Has anybody ever found a winning email in the junk mail folder?

I always delete mine before looking-guess I should be checking it.

That could pose a problem !! Thanks for the heads up. Normally I use an excite e-mail account for sweeps, but every once in a while I do also use my yahoo account to sweep, and always dump the bulk mail w/o even looking!!! Thanks again!! :grin5:

Yahoo has seriously narfed up their privacy issues! Even though I've set ALL my Yahoo identities and memberships to receive NO emails (and check them frequently, since they've been known to reset them)...and even though I've not entered more than a dozen sweeps using Yahoo...
...I get a hundred freaking bulk mails a day!
For a couple weeks I've carefully gone through all of them, and finally come to the conclusion that they are all junk. Occasionally I'll scan the headers now, but generally I just dump the whole folder. They oughta round up some dang spammers and give them a free vacation to Camp Xray, just to set an example. Grrrrr!
