iCloud automatically identifies most junk mail (spam) sent to your iCloud.com address or its aliases and moves the junk mail to your Junk mail folder. If you receive unwanted mail, you can mark it as junk. Messages marked as junk are displayed with a junk mail icon.

Email messages in the Junk folder are automatically deleted after 30 days, so periodically check the Junk folder to check for messages that were mistakenly marked as junk.

To indicate that my emails are now junk:
1. Click the Junk folder in the sidebar.
2. Select my email message, then click the “Not Junk” button in the top right of the message window.

Doing so will move the current message to your Inbox as well as any emails that come from me after this.

By default, messages in the Junk folder are deleted after 30 days so make sure you check it often, especially if you’re not getting emails that you’re expecting, to whitelist relevant email.

2. Click “Add to Address Book” in the email header.
3. Use the “Address Book Editor” to verify the sender’s contact details and click “save.”

Any mail sent with the same Domain will also now be delivered to your Inbox.

1. Open the email message from the sender you want to add to your address book.
2. Click on the “Save Address” link next to the “From” address.
3. Check the “Add to Contacts” box and click “Save.”
