SPAM Query

Can someone at PN try to help me understand what should happen with SPAM as I'm confused.
Firstly,  in webmail nothing seems to end up in my spam folder.  Why is this?
Secondly, when I get an email in my inbox such as ' [-SPAM-] There is an ecard waiting for you'
should this be sent to 'spam@spamtraining.plus.com' or has this already gone through the spam process?
Sorry if these are odd questions but I'm confused.

Re: SPAM Query

I can answer the second, if it is marked as spam , it has been through the spam filter and you dont need to take any more action,
Glad you dont like e-cards, they did at one time carry trojans
if you find a genuine marked as spam send that to notspan@spamtraing, if you find spam that is not marked send that to spam@spamtraing

Re: SPAM Query

Thanks again Pierre.  Looking at my settings I see what my problem is.  I have set up for spam once identified to be sent to my inbox.  That's why the spam folder was empty. Another lesson learned.
