An E-Mail Account:

Drafts: This folder stores those messages that you have created but have not been sent by you so far. These messages are saved by you for more work. Spam: Spam is unsolicited e-mails or junk mails. It is generally e-mail advertising sent to group of people. We can also term spam as unwanted e-mails. Spam mails are also a big cause of computer viruses. Spam mails are identified by the mail services and placed in this folder. These spam mails are automatically deleted after few days.
Trash: Any deleted mail is put in the Trash folder. Trash folder allows you to get back an e-mail which have already been deleted. But it is important to know that you can get back the mails only within few days from trash after its deletion. After few days, mails are permanently deleted from trash folder.
