    I've always wanted to know this because I keep getting spam messages daily.

    If you are using Gmail or an Exchange Account, you can move the message into the "Spam" or "Junk Email" folder respectively.

    There may be something similar for other services, but I don't use them.

    I just move them to the spam/junk folder of the email service provider (google, icloud, etc). Hopefully that registers the email as spam with the service provider.

    I'm trying to move the messages on yahoo. Yahoo doesn't seem to have a spam folder.

    Yahoo Mail has a Spam folder. Yahoo will move suspected spam into this folder. You can set how long it will remain in the folder before it is emptied. If you do receive spam in your inbox you can set a filter so that it won't go into your inbox in the future. This must be done on the Yahoo web site and not in Apple's Mail app. The Spam folder on Yahoo is the Bulk folder in the Mail app.


    "SpamGuard is ON:[Edit Settings]
    SpamGuard ensures that suspected spam is delivered to the Spam folder, and is deleted after one week.What's this?"******

    I did state "This must be done on the Yahoo web site and not in Apple's Mail app."

    I created three filters on Yahoo after watching the spam for key words and I have not had one single spam email delivered to my Inbox in 1-1/2 years. The three words I used were Penis, Viagra and Rolex.
