“An envelope is not just an envelope, it's a letter. We still will go to the mailbox … hoping today it won't be just junk mail.” Daniel Stein

In my Internet 3 Class we sign up for a student’s first email. The one I prefer to use with student is Gmail because it is very easy to use and it does not have any flashing ads to distract them. The last time I taught this one student asked why it was necessary to hit the report spam button instead of just deleting it. I answered that Gmail is a community and if you mark it such then other members will not get the same junk either. The student seemed satisfied but I wished there was an example of this. Thankfully Google came to my rescue when they released their video about spam just recently. Check the video out and see if I gave an OK answer.
