    Is anyone aware of any email app for the ipad that has built in spam filtration? I can't stand it! Thanks.

    Unfortunately, spam filters work on the server, so it's up to your e-mail provider (or ISP) to have filters. The iPad is just a mirror of what is up on the server, so you'll have to modify your settings there.

    That's what I understand. But on my iMac my Thunderbird catches nearly all the spam, so why can't iMail on the iPad? Or any other email app, for that matter?

    I route all my email addresses through gmail. It catches most, but not all, of the spam before it gets to either my Mac or my iPad. We're talking several hundred per day! Gmail has very good spam filtering, plus it's easy to create filters manually, either white or black. Spam is retained on the server for 30 days by default, in case of false positives. There are a couple of hoops through which to jump so you can use your existing non-gmail return address(es), but that's a straightforward one-time setup task. Of course, you'll want to use IMAP, not POP, so your multiple computers will stay synched.
