Re: Spam emails

Try this with your iphone and see if it works;

 

With Apple Mail launched, select "Mail" at the top left corner and choose "Preferences." Select the "Rules" tab and then click "Add Rule." Enter the email address of the unwanted sender in the "From Contains" criteria -- you can also enter just the domain in this field if you prefer. Choose what you want Apple to do with any messages received from the sender -- for example, delete or forward them to a folder -- and then click "OK" to put the rule into effect.

Thanks for trying but this article really only deals with calls or messages coming to my phone no. Still doesn't explain how to block messages to my email address. It may be that there is no way to do it at the phone level.

Re: Spam emails

Thanks Jeff, hopefully this will stop the spam. I have also reported the sender to Bigpond. On the same topic, does sending spam to the junk folder do anything, as in send further emails from that person straight to junk in future?

Re: Spam emails

I'm not certain with the Apple system on that point Sue. Obviously if you use the delete setting, they just don't appear.

Re: Spam emails

Hi there MMission, that most certainly is spam or scammer email that has been doing the rounds for sometime.

 

DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS IN IT AND DELETE STRAIGHT AWAY.
