Public Service Announcement

Do you check your junk e-mails before you delete them? Or do you -- as is my custom -- just delete the whole list of them without even looking at who sent them? Well, our computer trainer recently advised you should ALWAYS check at least the name of the sender of any junk mail before deleting it because every once in a while an e-mail you want, but the computer doesn't recognize as a known sender, gets sent to the junk box inadvertently. I am sure a lot of you are thinking, well, of course, I do that; but it was news to me.
Case in point: This week for some unknown reason I decided to check the junk file before I deleted it. What was sitting there, waiting for me? An e-mail from from the editor of a stamping magazine asking me if I wanted to submit some work to be considered (emphasis on the considered) for an article as a guest artist!!! Well, of course I did and returned the e-mail immediately.
But I keep thinking how easily I could have deleted that e-mail............

Big congrats and I totally agree about everyone checking their spam/junk folders. I have 'hotmail' so there are quite a few times that emails go to those folders for no reason that I can think of so I always check.
