I'm glad I wondered into this discussion.
I was having a terrible time getting the mail from TCH when I signed up. Every time something came through, AOL popped it into my spam folder. Luckily I have 9.0 so I can get into my blasted spam folder. The previous versions don't allow any control so the mail just goes *poof*.
Each time I knew I was expecting TCH mail, I looked in the spam folder and clicked the "not spam" link to move it back but darn it, it's not like other filters I've used on OE - AOL doesn't seem to learn....
Will be wandering back.
