    The only way I know to block messages is to do that via your account on the Hotmail web site. The iPad only mirrors what's on the server, you can't make it separate emails coming in to the Mail app. So, if you can find a way to stop it at the web site - that's how you'll need to do.

    And sorry, I don't have/use Hotmail, so I can't be more specific than that. Hopefully, someone will come along to add more details...

    Hi Dave - welcome to the forum! :) I'm not understanding your statement in bold above, i.e. if you have setup your Hotmail account to screen messages not wanted, then iPad Mail will simply log into that account and download the same messages that you would see if viewing from your computer - the 'blocked' messages on the web site should not be sent to your iPad. Now, I use Yahoo Mail which is my iPad account and the spam blocking that I have setup there prevents the mail from being sent to my device; SO, just a little confused why your 'blocked' messages on the Hotmail website are apparently still reaching your Ipad?

    I want to block messages I have viewed on my ipad for hotmail. I know you can block them on your PC when viewing your account, but not on the ipad. Is there any way I can block messages when on the ipad?

    No. The iPad only shows what is on the server; it is like a mirror, reflecting what is in your account on the web There is no way to block any e-mails via the iPad. It all has to be done on the server.

    You need to create rules on your hotmail account to filter content. Spam etc, and then sync.
    If this is your primary email, switch to something GMAIL or Yahoo.
    I have all 3 but my hotmail is my disposable email account, and I use gmail for like bill paying and yahoo for
    Social stuff, Facebook LinkedIn.

    Btw hotmail is horrible for spam. I swear they sell your addresses to spammers
