I bet I can write a legitimate email message that your spam filter would mark as spam. For example, if I emailed you and others who think the same way about identifying spam something like this: "Hey, friends, I thought you should take a look at this -- <http://read-how-spam-filt…>", I am sure your spam filter would mark that as spam.

Now, if your email program moves spam messages to a seperate folder, and you have to look at messages in it to see if legitimate messages haven't been falsely accused of being spam, what's the point in having the spam filter at all? Just place them in your main Inbox folder, and manually analyze messages and delete spam.
