iPhone: How to Mark Emails as Junk, Including Multiple Messages at Once

2020-02-28 1424 Posted by 3uTools

If you use Apple’s Mail app on your iPhone and want a tidier inbox, follow along for how to mark emails as junk as well as how to move multiple emails at once to junk.


iCloud email addresses and most other popular email providers offer automatic junk mail features, but they can’t eliminate all spam and junk messages.


Here’s how Apple describes its junk email features: iCloud uses trend analysis, dynamic lists, and other technology to automatically detect and block junk mail before it reaches your inbox. While there isn’t a way to completely stop junk mail from reaching your inbox, here are some tips that can help reduce the amount of junk mail you receive.


Some of the steps Apple recommends taking to reduce junk mail include:


  • Don’t open email you think is junk

  • Mark email you don’t want to receive in your inbox as junk

  • Correct false-positives (moving emails that shouldn’t be in the junk folder back to your inbox)


When you move emails that you don’t want to be receiving to junk on iPhone or any of your devices, it teaches Apple to put ones from the same sender in junk in the future. This is helpful, as it can be more time consuming to unsubscribe from email lists, or sometimes it seems like a fruitless endeavor. However, it’s quick and easy to mark email as junk and let Apple learn your preferences.


But you can also use the smart Mail app feature to unsubscribe from email lists too; it just doesn’t show up for all emails that come from a mailing list. Look for that at the top of an email when available.
