Don't want anything going to SPAM folder
I HATE webmail!!! I pick up my messages in Outlook 2010, where I have my SPAM folder disabled (i.e., nothing goes to JUNK; all goes to INBOX). Webmail is labor intensive and just plain annoying!
Recently upgraded to U-Verse. Because I failed to receive an ebill from one of my creditors, I went looking in webmail just in case it was there, which it wasn't, so to the best of my knowledge, that wasn't an AT&T failure.
However, the SPAM folder in webmail had tons of messages, many of which were IMPORTANT!!!! No wonder I thought that nobody responded to my craigslist ad! The fact that they went into SPAM there apparently caused them to not load to my Outlook INBOX. (How many previous messages were withheld from me in this manner?)
My attempted "emergency" fix was to set my Outlook junk folder to "high" so spam will hopefully land there, but it didn’t help. To get these messages into Outlook I have to go into webmail and forward them to myself!
My real question is: Is there a way to tell AT&T/Yahoo to send everything to my INBOX and nothing to SPAM?
No, I don't want to have to go into webmail and tell it that each message is not spam...it's not a case of regular senders going to SPAM, it's a case of senders who may only email me once or twice - I need to receive those messages (without going through the check-webmail-and-forward-to-myself stupidity as mentioned above)!
I don't want AT&T/Yahoo deciding what is important to me; that should by MY choice. I do not want anything ever going into a SPAM folder. I will decide what is junk and/or spam and either "unsubscribe" or report it to firstname.lastname@example.org as is appropriate.
