    My junk mail filter works great on the iMac, but doesn't at all on the iPhone. I've searched in the mail settings on the iPhone and can't find anything about this feature. It does exist doesn't it?

    Thanks a bunch in advance!

    P.S. I'm using Apple Mail with MobileMe.

    You don't. You enable junk mail filtering on our provider (e.g. MobileMe, gMail, etc) and have it filtered at the server level.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What if I am using MobileMe and Junk Mail is turned on and works great on the iMac but junk mail is still showing up in the iPhone?

    Then the client is currently doing your spam filtering. You need to be sure you have server side filtering. Who is your mail provider? Can you log into webmail and configure it there?

    It means you need an email provider with better server side filtering.

    My mail provider is MobileMe. So I need to log in to MobileMe and look for a preference of server side filtering?

    I think that is most any other than MM. I have MM have had junk mail filtering turned on forever, and it hardly ever catches anything at all. MM has got to be the absolute worst junk mail filter I have ever seen (and the same held true for .mac before it).

    Wait till they add filtering rules to MobileMe, and you'll be set.
