    Guys sorry to hikack the thread, but I too have a problem thats is very very annoying and need to try and stop, and hope you guys can at least point me in the right direction.

    What it is I have 2 email accounts, one private that is and has run fine for years, but I also have an email address for my gaming website, that is a gmail email, but now gets picked up both on my mac, and ipad, however I have had a dam spam send an email to about 5 or 6 of my contacts, and I have no clue, how.

    I do think it is happening through my ipad, given that it only picks up a few contacts, as I dont have many in there.

    So guys any idea at all how to stop this happening.

    I transferred to Gmail after my Yahoo account was hacked and a stream of am sent to my contacts.

    I printed off my contact emails and mailing bro us. I then got gmail to automatically import contacts and emails from Yahoo. It was a pretty painless process.

    I then deleted my contacts from Yahoo,, but kept the account to check periodically for emails. Once I had deleted the Yahoo contact lists the spam stopped.

    I too am suffering from too much spam on my Ipad. I do have both a gmail account and an yahoo account. How do you setup a process where they are all directed to or through gmail for the spam feature, but I dont have to change my yahoo, (att.net) email address. Thanks for your help..

    Log into your yahoo account online and go into the settings to have your yahoo email forwarded to your gmail account. All your emails will end up coming through gmail at that point, and it is up to you if you want your iPad to continue to sync to your yahoo account.
