How can I stop junk mail from showing up in my email inbox on my iPhone?

Tom Moran April 29, 2013

I have an iPhone and receive all my work email on Outlook and have it also sent to my phone. I setup a rule on Outlook to send all unwanted email to my “Junk” folder. Now here is my big question how to I make that happen on my iPhone? I receive all email good and unwanted on my iPhone into my “In box” and sometimes have up to 400 Junk emails a day. Any help to this question would be great. Thanks, Tom

    I use to manage my email glut. You can use it to virtually unsubscribe from lists which hides them from your inbox altogether. It has saved me hours a week.

    I believe there is no way to stop spam mails arriving on your iPhone as there is no built-in spam filter for iPhone.

    It seems that Outlook doesn't works well with the general setup in iPhone so it shows all junk mails in inbox.

    Try deleting the account and all data from your phone and once again setup your email to see any improvements.

    Else,you can also use some of the paid apps -

    There is no spam filter built into iphone ios, Filtering has to be done on the server.

    See, that is probably what you may have done otherwise. You have setup a rule at the Outlook client for junk mails, instead of setting up a junk or a spam filter at the email server end. Almost all email servers support a feature to activate a filter for spam / junk email and also you can setup rules at the email server end. I would request you to kindly do so. Solicit the help of your IT guy if required. Once you setup the rule at the email server, it will automatically apply to all the various email clients and devices you would use to accessing that email ID. I hope this suggestion helps. :)
