i am compelled to relate the following true story - OT sorry
i'll never do it again :)

i get about 400-500% more spam than real messages
filtering makes most of the real ones go to folders and the Inbox just
fills up with spam mostly
so i sit there on the delete key while scanning the subjects 

yesterday - "WE WANT TO PUT FUNDS IN YOUR BANK"
yeah right - ZAP

ah wait a minute, looked through the trash and started to read the
message
yep, spam alright

i was just about to hit the final unrecoverable DELETE key when it
became apparent a page down that it was a legitimate outfit that really
did want to put funds in my bank for an immediate purchase! (which i
have confirmed)
