Better mailbox organization to reduce spam:

You can better manage your emails and deal with spam, if you can organize your mailboxes into three folders:

1. Known Email Addresses folder - Only receives emails from known email addresses from your email address book.
2. Unknown Email Addresses folder - Only receives emails from unknown email addresses
3. Website Inquiries folder - Only receives emails from website inquiries and orders

The unknown email address folder is going to be primarily filled with spam. You can scan through that folder quickly for any legit email.
