    I've been sending the same emails to the junk folder for the last 4 months (from Mail.app), but I still receive the same damn emails in my inbox.

    What's wrong with the spam filtering system? Or could be Mail.app maybe?

    I think it just moves them to the junk folder but does not actually flag it as junk mail. Another flaw in the Mail app.

    I read the opposite many times in Apple Support. But I don't know if that's a true statement or not.

    It's the iOS Mail app not marking them. I've been getting spam bombs for the last month and what I've been doing is keeping them in my Inbox and log onto my iCloud account at icloud.com. Then, I select the message, click on the gear on the upper right, and select Mark as Junk Mail. It gets flagged and moved to the Junk mail folder.

    iCloud.

    The thing is that supposedly Mail.app SHOULD mark those emails as spam.

    What a pain in the ass. I think is too much work to leave the emails in the inbox, then login on the website and to move them from there to the junk folder. Definitely too much considering that the thing should just work.

    Also is impossible to access the iCloud website from an iDevice.

    BTW if I do the same using the desktop client instead of the iOS app, will these emails be marked as spam? Or still I have to go to the iCloud website?

    The fact you can't access icloud.com on an iPhone is ridiculous for as long as there are settings and features not present in the app/Settings.

    You can if you use a browser with a desktop mode. Warming, its not very pretty. Surprisingly enough, iCloud.com works much better on Android devices...lol
