    I sync my iPhone with MobileMe, and so all my .mac email gets sent to my iPhone. Here is what I want to do, there are certain emails that I do not want to see on my phone. Basically emails that are useless for me to see unless I am at my workstation so them going to my iPhone only makes them a hassle to see.

    These emails always have almost the same wording, so perhaps there is a rule in Mail I can setup to avoid them going to iPhone? Any one have any ideas?

    This question may be better asked in a Mail-centric forum but it's worth a shot.

    I use mobile me, you can filter by words in the subject or sender, but not by words in the actual email itself.
    If you log on at and click the cog wheel in the top right you can select filters from there.
    The solution I have done is set 2 rules for the emails I don't want on my iPhone.
    1st rule: forward to another email address (just goes to a hotmail address that I can check every so often)
    2nd rule: move to trash

    Hope this helps.
