You can only do that parallel filter trick using IMAP.MBP 17, MBP 15 i7, Powerbook G4, iMac 20, 32gig iPhone3Gs, Mac OS X (10.6)

If I could add a filter on my inbox to automatically move anything with me in those areas, I would be fine. Does anyone know of a way to set up email rules to move things to certain inboxes? If not, how to suggest it?iPad, iPhone OS 3.0.1, iPad

Plus you'd have the added benefit of forever having a copy of your mail since gmail gives you so much space.iPad & PC

Can you please supply a step-by-step for routing my pop accounts through gmail to filter junk & then retrieve the non-junk mail on my iPad. Will check into my mail servers filtering capabilities.

This was the best answer I've ever found to the ongoing issue of spam to my ISP email. Set up in a few minutes, had to deal with annoying duplicates of whatever emails were on the server, and now it works perfectly. I normally get 20+ pieces of spam daily that I have to manually delete on my iPad. I haven't had a thing in 24 hours and the Google spam catcher hasn't been wrong yet. Thank you so much!

I can't find any good spam filtering on the iOS either. It is a real pain and keeps me from using my iOS devices for serious work. It is a really pity that Apple has crippled Mail on the iOS so badly. It should have the full functionality of Mail on the MacOS complete with rules, extra signatures, etc. It makes me think Apple doesn't want people to migrate to using the iOS devices off of their Macs.

I agree with the gmail filtering, but if you have all your mail go through gmail. If you reply to the email won't it use the gmail account as the from rather than the email that it was originally sent to?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)

You can adjust that in Gmail settings from your computer, if I recall.

Are you or anyone else reading this aware of a more fully featured Mail App for iPad that suports Spam filtering synchronized with the mail host as it would be with a 'real' computer?
Is the lack of Spam filtering an iPad system strategy or architecture problem, somethiing they didn't think about or just didn't want or know how to do? The assumption that 'everyone' has a computer to manage such things is limiting useful functionality. The lack of ability to mark something as Spam at the iPad is limiting useful functionality.
