    Hi,

    Over the last couple of weeks i've been getting loads of spam email from a different email adress everytime, about 7 a day.

    It's pointless me blocking an address because, as i say, its a different email everytime.

    Any ideas on what i could do to stop getting these emails?

    Thanks

    Are you using iCloud for email? There has been a recent influx of spam to iCloud addresses. If you are using an iCloud.com email address, fwd the message as an attachment to spam@me.com to help Apple filter these out.

    Also, how can i forward as an attatchment on iphone?

    I can see how to do that on my mac computer but on my iphone the only option is just 'forward'.

    There does not appear to be a way to do this. I just leave them until I get home and fwd. from OS X Mail.
