Incoming mail going to spam folder when spam controls are turned off

Why are emails from people in my address book going to my spam folder when I don't have spam controls turned on? Also, why do some emails never make it to me at all? I know this because I forward from other accounts.

Same problem for me. I added Unknownsender@Unknowdomain to my block list, and AOL still delivers it to my inbox, not even spam box. It began 2-3 weeks ago, and I get 20-30 pieces of worth stuff daily from it. COME ON AOL LETS GET THIS TAKEN CARE OF.
