No problems...but rather than start a new thread I'll tag this on.

Has anyone noticed a humoungous increase in the amount of spam hitting g-mail recently? It's all going to my spam folder, but I'm talking 100's/day.

This seems to happen once every 3 months or so, then goes away.

Not me. I rarely get spam there, but it isn't an address I provide too frequently.

However, given that I just use firstname dot lastname, I actually expect to get more than I do.

What format is your addy - just curious if that has anything to do it?

I just use "username"@gmail.com so that could be it...but it's never been this bad and I haven't "signed up" for much of anything lately.

We'll see if it just runs its course or not.

Not really, but I tend to use my Gmail address to sign up for mailing lists and my address is easily found online, so I routinely get several thousand spam messages per month. If there was a spike in spam traffic, I'd never notice.

Probably less than one spam a day, on average, gets through the filter into my inbox, so that's pretty impressive. And though I don't check that often, it's been a long time since I've caught Gmail sending a legit message to the spam folder.

That sums up my Yahoo mail pretty well.

Looking at my Gmail, I have only five messages in my spam folder and that is an all-time high for me.

Make sure that you can see all hidden folders and files. You can change that in the Folder Options. The folder should show up then.
