    Junk mail disappears! (2003 11.8217.8221 SP3)

    I'd been getting about 80 pieces of spam per day, most of it shunted to my Junk Mail folder, but occasionally there was something sent there by mistake (ie, something that I wanted or needed to see).

    I recently downloaded the latest Microsoft updates. Now, nothing is going to the Junk Mail folder, and no junk is coming to the inbox. Is this something odd from the latest update?

    The ringmasters of a large botnet recently were taken off line, so global spam volumes are much lower than usual at the moment. This is a possible alternate explanation for not receiving much spam.
