    I use Eudora as my mail client and had turned off the AOL spam filtering long ago. I did spam filtering on my own computer. Recently I began to notice that emails were not being delivered to me including ebill notices from credit card companies, my doctor's messages, notices from my home owners association, library notices, etc. My complaints to various sources were answered with "check your spam folder". I just found out that AOL changed their system so spam filtering at their end was enabled and can no longer be turned off. I don't know when this change was made and if they notified me, the notice must have wound up in their spam filter because I didn't receive it. This change has cost me several late fees on credit card bills and other inconveniences. I can't even find out what all I missed because they apparently delete stuff from the spam filter after about 30 days. I don't know what motivated this change but the least they could have done is provide proper notice.
