How do I get e-mail into the spam folder?  I've started getting alot of unwanted e-mail advertisements, and "unsubscribing" doesn't appear to help at all.  Thank you.

Every time you've "unsubscribed" you've notified the spammer that your email address is alive [and well], so they continue to spam you.  Don't even open the emails, just highlight them and mark them as spam.  It will take a while for the spam filter to be "trained", so you'll need a lot of patience at this point.

DO NOT use the unsubscribe links in junk mail.  That just tells the spammer your email address is active, and you will start seeing even more junk.  The best thing to do is keep marking the messages as spam whenever they get to your Inbox.  It helps to train the filters.  Also, make sure you have the spam filtering enabled in the account.  From the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>Email>>>>>>Spam Filtering.
