    I have a friend that sends 20 joke emails a day. My outlook sends his mail to the junk mail folder so I don't have to deal with them. The phone stock mail app gets my email from comcast.net fine but I can't seem to filter his emails out. Is there a mail app that would let me get my mail from comcast and send certain email address to a junk mail folder...It's a real pain to have to delete them one by one.

    Also I see that the phone list over 200 emails I've deleted in trash...Hopefully they aren't on my phone somewhere.

    I also do this with Gmail. Then I use K9 on my phone to just poll the Gmail folders I want to see on my phone.

    Gmail priority inbox is awesome, but I also filter out stuff I don't need to see in my inbox into their own folders so they don't download.

    You could forward all your comcast mail to gmail and handle it that way :)

    Wouldn't it be easier to just tell your friend that you don't want the junk mail?

    Sorry, just curious.

    Yes I could tell him, but I figure he has no life and it's like I'm getting away with something and he has no clue. Yes Mac, I went to comcast and found the filter so the issue has stopped on my phone. Don't know why I didn't think of it. I just normally use outlook for my mail and I filter it there.
