No. Whether you have your preference set to save messages in the Known Spam folder or not, it is never counted in your quota and does not show up as space used in the storage indicator.

The default spamBlocker setting is to delete all Known Spam immediately, and if you click the folder you only see a graph showing how many messages were caught and deleted. If you change the setting to not delete Known Spam immediately, then the most recent 100 messages up to 10 days old are saved, but do NOT count in your quota.

Why is the informatin about messages over 100 and over 10 days being deleted hidden from users? It is not given in the Help files for Webmail. It was only after finally finding this blog that I could get this information.
