    Just recently I've started getting a lot of ads in the actual mail app. I have a Adguard as my main blocker for Safari. Did Apple change something in iOS that prevents Adguard from working in the Mail app? Is there any iOS content blocker that works for email too?

    Content blockers do not work in Mail. The ads you are seeing are embedded directly int the body of the email. Try disabling the loading of remote images in Mail settings.

    You mean in the emails themselves? A screenshot perhaps?

    That seems like content in the emails themselves. Perhaps a systemwide ad blocker like Adblock Pro or something similar might work, but that's about it (short of not loading images in those emails or the emails themselves not putting those ads in).

    Ads in emails are phishing? Seems like just ads.

    But you or other party may have in the past clicked on a link.

    Malware aimed at routers is a thing now.

    The images that an email pulls down, ad server or host may be compromised even.

    A security news site part of your reading? Even Apache and Linux are in the news and being exploited.

    Why do ads in an email have anything to do with something being compromised?

    That appears to be an ad placed within the mail message, trivial to do with HTML mail.

    Just a plain ad in an email (similar to a plain ad on a website) is basically just that, a plain ad. Nothing to indicate anything else or more to it really.
