Before now, all I do whenever I login to my Gmail, Yahoo or Zohomail was to check emails in my Primary and Updates folder. I don’t always pay attention to mails in my promotion and spam folder or junk folder.
This trend continued until I was trying to test cron job in my vps server. The mails were reportedly sent but I couldn’t find them in my inbox. So, I decided to check my spam folder. Lol and behold, there were up to 20 mails that were very important to me. The painful thing was that, the mails were function of time (the events had passed).
From the day I discovered that not all mails in spam folder are actually spam, I have made it a habit to check my spam and other folders daily.
So many persons have missed scholarship invitations, job interviews and other important appointments because the mail sent to them was caught by spam bots. You should make it a habit to check your email spam box regularly.
If you haven’t been checking your spam folder before now, don’t be shocked at the precious mails you would see over there.
Before I end this post, let quickly explain the meaning of spam, how to check your spam folder and why some mails end up in spam folder.
Note: Some of the terms I would use below may be too technical; but the bottomline is that you should check your spam folder regularly.
According to Wikipedia, Email spam, also known as unsolicited bulk email (UBE), junk mail, or unsolicited commercial email (UCE), is the practice of sending unwanted email messages, frequently with commercial content, in large quantities to an indiscriminate set of recipients.
Checking your spam folder is very easy. All you need is to login to your email and locate the spam section.
