the default  for the new webmail has the SPAM option of save for 30 days etc while with the old xtra mail you could
set to delete immediately. If you change to the beta version and highlight the bulk mail file while in options you will see other options including delete immediately. If you select this and save then all SPAM is deleted. If you then revert to the origonal mail you still keep the beta version SPAM settings. Works well for me. cheers George

Too much genuine mail is ending up in the Bulk folder at the moment to risk deleting immediately. You have to open and mark as "Not spam" to train your personal filter. The mail in your bulk folder doesn't count against any storage limits so apart from manually deleting what's left after saving the real mail, why bother?

Mention of "Bulk Folder" assumes that you've selected that option for spam which makes it easier to do the "Not Spam" training rather having all mail delivered.

genuine mail being identified as SPAM will quickly reduce to nil.  (mine has) News items saying Xtra users don't want to see SPAM shows many were using the "delete all" option when on the xtra servers. I am just showing an option to do the same on Yahoo!xtra. cheers,George
