    So I've been using iCould ever since it was MobileMe, I've never really had a problem with the email side of it. Everything has always worked great.

    I use my iCloud email for my more important mail, I have a hotmail account that I use for stuff that I don't really care about and know I might get spam through.

    But over the past few months I've been getting spam in my iCloud account, and lately i'm getting about 10-15 emails a day all similar "Click to claim your reward" etc.

    Now I've been on Apple's site and marked messages as junk, forwarded them to spam@icloud.com to be filtered but nothing is making a difference at all.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do?

    It's not really a function of iCloud or any mail provider. Once your email address gets spread to a few spammers, they sell it to others, and it just keeps getting worse. Once you start getting spam at an address, there's nothing you can do to reverse it.
