Hi Aaron, I'm a long time gmail user but don't use sections (like social or promotions). I tried those once and had a lot of problems with emails being misclassified and going to the wrong folder so no longer use it.

Gmail has an excellent spam catcher so I don't get much but I check spam at least twice a day, AM and PM so it only takes a minute to glance at it. Lately I've been finding one or two emails a day marked as spam that weren't so it's cheap insurance.

Depends on your email service provider and the 'levels' of filtration enabled.

Example: Yahoo email with no filters places EVERYTHING in the in box.

Example: RoadRunner email will place important mail in the spam folder and some it will 'zap' immediately, regardless of user settings.

I have an 'EVERYTHING' email in use for my marketing efforts. This email address is a spam target.

However, my responses will be through a different email provider to those that have promise.

When you get 350 emails a day, a process is needed. Most email clients allow the user to install a name to be displayed in the 'FROM" field making multiple accounts much more convenient.

My junk email is usually just junk! I look through it every few weeks before dumping. I'd suggest having a free site "clean" your email box - "unroll.me" it really has been helpful in keeping the email clutter down.
