Through the web mail interface, you can mark stuff in the Bulk folder, "Not 
Spam", and it is moved to the inbox and retrieved with POP.

Verizon's spam filters are actually quite good.  I set up a dummy account 
through which I forward all of my business mail, just to take 
advantage of the filtering.  Much better than the Mozilla bogofilter.  Trains 
well.  Once stuff is marked "Not Spam", it isn't diverted again.

I just thought it was ironic that the Class Settlement Notice itself was 
automatically classified as spam.
