Oh! Okay. iCloud does spam filtering server-side, then. Thing about iCloud is that it’s handled entirely as a server-side process, just like other e-mail services are. Going to iCloud.com gives you a direct line in to that server and its functions, but Mail in iOS and OS X… don’t. One change in particular I’d like Apple to make regards Mail on your computer becoming a 1st level access point to iCloud. I want Mail to have the same level of access to iCloud’s functionality directly, rather than being a 2nd level client only. Specifically I mean that you don’t even have access to iCloud’s filter and have to go to iCloud.com to see messages that have been caught.
Speaking for myself, if iCloud has spam filtering, it ain't very good. The mail filters built into Mail.app catch plenty of junk.
Don’t sign up for ‘plenty of’ newsletters, then.
In all seriousness, I’ve never received a single piece of spam from iCloud, ever. It blocks everything even before it hits the user’s own personal client-side filter.
