What iOS Mail Needs

John Ferman-2
What Apple should put in iPad Mail is a capability to label messages as Junk forever. A few unscrupulous site have highjacked my email address and now I get huge amounts of unwanted advertising.

Actually, it already has a built in capability to learn what is Spam and let the server know, as well. Simply mark the message as Junk and Mail will do it's best to automatically mark and move similar ones to your Junk folder.

Unfortunately, most spammers realize this and do their best to hide the real purpose of the message as well as sending it from dozens of different sources, making it much more difficult to identify as Spam.

In my case, after years of training, only about 1% still show up in my Inbox.

Good to know.

I have Spamsieve on my computer, but I had started moving spam to junk on my phone halfheartedly. Now I will work on it more consistently.
