    2929 * Select "Deliver to folder" and either choose an existing folder (if you already have a spam folder) or Create new folder if you want to create one. We do not recommend sending spam to the trash folder, since our spam filters to occasionally make mistakes.

    33 IMP/Horde will now start sorting your spam. Don't forget to visit the spam box once a day to delete all the messages in there (or transfer any you may want to read to the In Box). That's why you created the folder. If you don't, the only option will be to delete the spam-tagged emails and then you won't have the option of searching them in case you suspect an email you want was filtered.
