Can I set up a rule to send certain email on my iPad straight to Trash?

How can iPad Mail email with a defined word or phrase be automatically sent to Trash.

On my iMac, I can go to Mail “preferences”, Security and type in a word or phrase that will automatically send e-mails containing that word or phrase somewhere else – to another account or to Trash.

I got on a T-Mobile “Apple iPhone” blog and now get hundreds of unwanted e-mails with [APPLE® iPHONE®] headings that dump to Trash where I delete them.

I want to set up my iPad to do the same, but can’t find the same Security feature that is on the iMac.

    Add filter from mail settings by specifying the email address (which must be deleted as soon as it is received) and set action as delete.

    Junk (spam) mail filtering is at the level of your email server or a spam filter you install on your computer.

    it's server based works for both POP3 and IMAP accounts or your domain.

    @susendeep, I don't think he is using an icloud email address. What you describe only works if he is using an icloud account.. I have gmail, hotmail and mostly email hosted by my email provider. If they have something like hotmail or gmail, you are out of luck. You only use their spam filter and I don't think there is an easy way to do it. At least, not without some fancy programming. At least that's what I found after 15 minutes of digging.

      If you do use an email service like gmail or hotmail (outlook.com) you can always define that filter in their respective webmail interface, so whenever the spams hit the server, they are filtered out and never reaches the iPAD Apple Mail client. :) Isn't it? Or am I suggesting something wrong here.
