    My POP account is filtered pretty good on my iMac and laptop, but it seems like I get all of the junk on my iphone. Are there any add-on's that would help screen that crap out?

    Hmmm...nope. A mail filter from a third party would be a modification to a core application. A huge no-no in Apple's playbook. However, if you are using a POP like Gmail or AOL, etc. you could try to set up a filter there to block the spam

    if you are using gmail use imap. If your pop account is not gmail pipe everything through gmail. Google has awesome spam filters. "I get no spam" -Dvorak

    Not sure what you mean by "pipe". So, I want to 'forward my regular email address to my gmail account and then only use the gmail account on the iphone?
