    I only have 1263 spam messages, but that's because I cleaned up a few months ago...

    Yeah, I cleaned up three weeks ago. I'll stop doing that from now on [​IMG] They don't take up any space anyway.

    I have a firefox extension that makes it so that I'm never alerted about how much spam I have in my gmail. I can only even tell if I click into it, which obviously I've no reason to.

    I thought the messages in the spam box were deleted after a month.

    I do commend Google though for having such a great filtering system. I've only ever received like, 7 spam messages in my inbox for all the years I've had my account.

    See that hole in your wall?
    Ditto.

    Back when Gmail was new and hard to get an account for, I was lucky enough to get an invite. I wasn't gonna use it seriously and wanted to test it, so I signed up my account for a ton of spam and after a few months noticed that I hardly got any of it in the inbox. I started using it sign up other stuff that I needed to register for but didn't want to use my main email for. Eventually I started using it as my main email and still do. I still get all the original spam, but I never see any of it.
