I was wondering too. Got the same but deleted them both. Was just a question of time until that pain swap over to .me/.cloud.
Now with more user maybe the focus of spammer move to us ?

As I have never ever given out that email address, or used it on any website, yes, I do believe Apple has given it out / had it taken from them / someone has targeted mobileme somehow.

Maybe you could read the thread properly from the start before you start posting cr@p please?

I got the same exact emails mentioned in this thread. How disappointing.

Mail filters it as "junk" but still puts it in my inbox? What good does that do?

I did read it, do you know how much ad information your browsers give out?

While I highly doubt that Apple has given out any information, it's possible that it was a problem with their spam filters. It's very possible that there is spam coming to your account that you're completely unaware of, and these two just flew through the filters.

I don't use my .mac addy for anything and in the last few months spam was terrible. It got better for a bit and now I get 5-8 spam messages a day. Marking as spam on my iPad or iPhone is useless.

I got the Dr Oz and did the same . I was very surprised as I don't use my @mac address at all for emails , only iCloud stuff .

Just moving them to your Junk folder automatically in webmail reports them to spam@me.com.

From Apple: Mark spam messages as junk or move them to the Junk folder in webmail. These messages are automatically reported to spam@me.com.

That is only from webmail at iCloud.com. Marking as junk or dragging to the junk folder in the Mail app does not report to spam@me.com.

Seriously. We should also be able to 'mark as spam' on iOS.

Exactly, people always say that icloud.com cant be access on iphone/ipad because the options are in the settings but theres a couple of things you can only do it on the website.

Apple's e-mail system is very half-assed. The security is terrible compared to Google's too - two step authentication for GMail is excellent.

Not got any spam on mine thus far though.
