My main iCloud account has started receiving Dr. Oz emails again. I got them back when this started in November, but it had since stopped. I guess that didn't last.

Even worse, I have an unused iCloud account that nobody has the address for but me and Apple. I just received a whole slew of spam emails (8 in total) within a matter of minutes. I really don't care if I'm receiving spam, as long as its properly filtered and I never see it. Gmail always seems to do a good job with that. Apple needs to step up their game.

My wife and I both use @me.com accounts and we got the same 12 emails at exactly the same time. Hearing her iPhone, her iPad, my Windows Phone, and my Windows 8 notifications going off at one time was a little bit of ear rape.

I got the ink one just now addressed to one of my aliases. I deleted the alias.

This is just great... first it hit my dormant @me.com address, now it goes for my @icloud.com address.

How can you delete the messages / move to spam with out opening them? When I select them to delete / move they open - is it bad to open them? Doesn't it acknowledge that the account is active / encourage spam?

You can uncheck this box in Mail prefs to prevent that, but really, the fact the message did not bounce back to the sender tells them it is a valid address, so I don't worry about it.

Thumb resize.

Count me in as a recent Spammed person... Weird thing is it seems to happen like others have said in 5-10 emails all in a row and I have noticed mine come in around 10-12 noon daily.

I have been receiving 10-12 similar emails for the past week. Apple needs to step up on their spam prevention. Haven't yet received any on my iCloud alias.

Just had another Dr.Oz wishing a merry Xmas, been sent to spam each time, but still come to inbox. Shame the spam filters on iCloud are non existent.

I've also been getting them again and have forwarded them (as attachments) to spam@me.com but Apple have shut down for the holiday so they probably won't get blocked until next week.

Just realized I had gotten the same Dr. Oz emails the other day. Of course I get other spam as well since I actually use this email quite often so it didn't phase me.

I've had the same Dr. Oz emails. Very, very strange. I'm sure our iCloud emails have been leaked somehow? Very concerning.

Again I've now been getting the same emails!

Looks like there has been a leak somewhere?

If they were actually working on blocking the spam it would have been done already. This has been happening for a while. I got a bunch of them yesterday. I'm close to switching back to Gmail.

I have been hit with the same SPAM on my @me.com account. I got about 3 Dr. Oz in the last several days and today the MacKeeper one as well. Until recently I have received virtually no SPAM on this account. C'mon Apple get some SPAM smashing going on.

Just got three more spam messages. Also got the Mackeeper one this morning. This is now ridiculous. It's been happening consistently throughout the past week. I'm going to start forwarding my iCloud email to Gmail and leave this behind.

And now I just got a fourth.

These are particularly disheartening as they are no longer addressed to "undisclosed@" but now my iCloud address.

Edit: make it a fifth.

I'm in the same boat. Same spam messages to mine and my wife's account. I wish Apple was being more proactive here. Looks like some email addresses got leaked.
