    I suspect a lot of users are like me. With extremely rare exceptions, spam never makes it as far as my computer since nearly all is caught and quarantined by my ISP.

    I'll typically skim down the list of subject-titles in the quarantine and usually just delete the whole thing. Once in a great while a title will be "iffy", suggesting it might be legit, and in a case like that I'll use the quarantined copy to examine contents (text-only) before deciding (usually the case) to include it in the cleanup.
