    Hello
    I'm Tammy. I've got crazy thing with my iPad. An Canadian Viagra pharmacy has got my email address. So It automatic sends up to twenty five a day to my spam folder. I know I just have to continually erase and thank goodness it does not go to my reg mail. But the question is how can I stop this ? Or better yet,how much can the spam folder receive before filling up? Right now I have eighty three. I have not opened them.

    I recommend setting up a gmail account and forward your current email to it. I really need to know whom your email is with as that will help answer questions. Gmail has an excellent spam filter and you can access it via the mail account or by the gmail app. The bottom line is it just works. . You also should be able to stop the emails by scrolling to bottom of email received and see if there is a link to unsubscribe

    Hope that helps

    What you can do with your Spam/Junk folder depends a lot on who your mail provider is. Most of the time, the controls/settings are on the provider's site, not the iPad. Who is your email provider?

    As this is an obvious spam, not a slightly more legitimate mail list from an established store, I do not recommend trying to unsubscribe. If the option exists, it is more likely to be used to verify your address than remove it.
