    How much spam do you have in your deleted items folder?

    I have about 2674, this has accumulated over 3 months. I have had this e-mail account for 4 years. Can anyone beat this?

    I have my deleted items folder empty itself frequently so I don't have the same spam buildup as you, but I would imagine I've received around that much spam in my email accounts. Especially the email account I use for posting to usenet.

    None in my deleted items folder, but in my Junk folder I have about 25,000 junk emails It's from the past 2.5 to 3 years. It wouldn't be nearly as bad, but my e-mail address is my first name (jennifer), so basically all the spammer has to do is have a list of all the most "common" first names and spam the f*ck out of them.

    I'd be happy to post a screenshot, give me a few minutes though, I have to import them back into Outlook Express.

    I think you posted in the wrong forum, though

    To date?

    4,678 pieces of SPAM.
    I keep them for evidence should someone decided to go after these spammers, and people are asking for proof that they did indeed spam should said spammer say they did not.

    They are not in my delete folder, in a specific folder that I later forward to the FTC and report for abuse to their respective ISP's.

    None. I don't have a deleted items folder.
    I delete them right off the server! Don't want that crap on my PC.

    I have close to 150 email accounts. On an average day I receive about 500 spams in total. I empty my deleted items box on a regular basis. I try to save as much stuff as I can but spam is one thing I don't save.

    I get quite a bit myself and delete it frequently. I am especially unhappy to get spam at the e-mail address I hoped to have for the rest of my life...which is my first name @rietta.com.
