Comcast's web interface is a bear to use; I am fairly sure one of my listservs 
is being seen as Spam--it isn't a yahoogroup either, but one of those is being 
affected, too.

Comcast is a huge company; I can't fathom why they don't make the freaking 
thing more accessible.

Can anyone tell me  exactly where to go to see what is happening in Spam?  
Outlook Express does not appear to have a Junk Folder unless I'm missing it

  I was speaking with someone earlier today, and was reminded about how some 
email providers deal with or set up spam filtering.  Earthlink, for example, 
turns on spam filtering on the server side, meaning that some of your mail 
might be held if it is suspected to be spam by some strange formula which I 
can't begin to understand.  Some ISP's or email providers may have spam 
filtering set up for you and you may not know it.  For those using screen 
reading programs, or other means to check email, it is easier to maintain the 
"junk" senders list using your computer, rather than the web interface through 
your email provider.  When in doubt, check it out!!! It's probably best to 
check your own web mail settings yourself, rather than ask the provider's tech
