    There is no facility on the iPad's native Mail app to filter spam - this has to be enabled on your service provider's email server. Most service providers these days provide effective spam filtering for users and they can usually be configured by you - this will depend upon the specific service provider that you have.

    Shameless quote of Michael Tsai from c-command.com:
    You can enable MobileMe’s junk filter by logging in to http://www.me.com/mail/ and choosing Preferences from the gear menu. If you do this, you’ll also need to periodically check its Junk mailbox to make sure it didn’t get rid of any good messages.

    Have you tried configuring the spam filter on your email service provider's server?

    This is ok on a mac. But I use the iPad most of the time. Currently have to leave Mac on 24/7. Looking for a way round this?

    Tim means that you should use the spam filter feature on your mail server, not your computer. If you don't know how to configure your mail server's settings, check your mail client or ISP's (broadband provider's) website or contact them directly. Most use SpamAssassin or something similar which has various levels that you can set as well as being able to specifically block certain email addresses, IP addresses, etc. That will filter your email long before it ever arrives on your computer or your iPad.

    I use me email. Apple do provide a filter when on Mac but spam arrives on my mac. I use spam sieve on the mac. Very effective but if the mac is off then spam arrives on the iPad. Apple don't seem top offer a filter especially on Cloud?

    No, they don't. That's why we've said that you will need to enable or configure the email spam filter on your provider's mail server. That's the only way you're going to reduce (but probably never eliminate) spam coming to your iPad. See my post above.

    Okay, for the last time. :) There is no spam filter on iCloud Mail.

    Please go back and read the previous posts. You will need to learn how to use the spam filter on your mail client. Contact your broadband provider or visit their website to find out more.

    With that the questions have been answered (several times).
