Thanks, Helen and tsuwm.
eta--the article said pronounced "et-ee-oin shurd-loo") : where the heck did it get that ee sound?? (I don't think I'll post how I've been mentally pronouncing it--I've embarrassed myself enough, recently!)

Fal: Thank you once again for the clarification. However, the principal advantage of the spam folder is precisely that you can delete the entire contents of the folder without having to browse the listing
Nonetheless I very much appreciate your help in these matters
Emptying the spam folder withou first looking at its contents is a sure way to delete any false positives. If this is not a problem for you then by all means go ahead and do it, but don't come complaining to me when you find you've missed your grand-daughter's wedding because you deleted the announcement without looking at it.

***Forgive me all to pieces but again I must not have been perfectly clear. I readily concede that I often curtail my followups so as to avoid excessive verbiage, whereupon I am misunderstood, and so I herewith apologize most profusely
***I hoped you had inferred from my last response that I would draw that very conclusion and so obviously I'd have to tolerate the drawback, though I'm immensely grateful for your warning because as a result, now before deleting I shall occasionally browse the listing before deletion en masse; whereupon if I spot a misplaced address I can forthwith drag it to another more suitable folder and then in the future make a special point to avoid inadvertently labeling such as spam, thereby permitting me to reinstate the jolly habit of emptying it all at once without necessarily scanning it in toto
..., but don't come complaining to me...
***Heavens no, why should I do that, I'm such a congenial fellow; while I want to again thank you profusely for all your enlightening, scholarly and tactful replies
***...although protocol now requires us to confine such discussions to a forum which although misnamed was kindly created by Admin especially for this purpose and is situated obscurely just after the main index entries
***Alternately, if you wish to contact me directly I am firstname.lastname@example.org and don't care who knows it_________________________

oh, don't be crediting Admin for this -- next you'll be putting it on Bill Gates head.

That explains your spam problem...

"if I spot a misplaced address I can forthwith drag it to another more suitable folder"
Many email handlers allow you to mark a particular message Not Spam, but only if you open it in the suspected spam folder. Just moving it to another folder won't do the job.

Most contemporary spam filters use a heuristic form of analysis to determine content, Usually looking for markers in headers.
However,cunning has a way of developing its own methods. The spammers current modus operandi is to trick the servers by hiding a message inside a picture. Similar to ambush marketing in modern movies.

Similar to ambush marketing in modern movies.
Is that the term to describe the trend of placing advertiser's products prominently in the hands of the major characters in movies and Television?
