ICloud falsely marks some mail as junk

iCloud Mail has started classifying all email I receive from Second Life as junk. Those email are marked as junk and move to the iCloud Junk folder.
I would rather filter my email on my iMac.
I have tried "training" iCloud Mail by logging into the web interface and manually clicking Not Junk. I read that this would stop marking email from that address as junk. However, the return addresses are 'tokenized' ([email protected]im.agni.lindenl ab.com) so the next message from that person will have a different address.
I don't see any setting to whitelist the domain (@im.agni.lindenlab.com) or to disable junk mail filtering altogether in iCloud.

Try the following first.
Go to Mail > Preferences > Junk Mail and deselect "Enable junk mail filtering".
Quit and re-launch the Mail.app.
Go to Mail > Preferences > Junk Mail and reselect "Enable junk mail filtering".
FYI - the Junk Filter learns in the same way regardless if set to Training or Automatic and continues to learn when set to Automatic if working properly.
I would also switch Junk Mail from Training to Automatic and after doing so, go to Mail > Preferences > Accounts and under the Mailbox Behaviors tab for the account preferences (for each account), there is an "Erase messages in the junk mailbox when:" selection.
Setting Junk Mail to Automatic will provide a Junk folder in the mailboxes drawer below the Trash folder. An account named Junk mailbox under Junk will be created automatically by Mail for each account that has previously received a message that was automatically or manually marked as junk.
When set to Automatic, any message that is automatically marked as junk when received will be automatically transferred to the account's Junk mailbox getting this garbage out of the account's Inbox mailbox. You can set each account's Junk mailbox to be automatically deleted after one day or one week as desired to give you adequate time to check the Junk mailbox for any valid messages that were incorrectly marked as junk when received marking any valid messages as not junk and moving such a message back to the account's Inbox mailbox.
Keep in mind that purging each account's Junk mailbox after a reasonable period of time aids in the Junk Mail "learning" process.

  • ICloud says I've marked some emails as junk, but I didn't do it.  Why is this happening?

    I mainly use icloud.com on Chrome to access my iCloud emails.  Up until recently, I haven't experienced any problems with the junk mail filter . I will see maybe 1 or 2 emails in a week marked as junk.  50% of the time it is junk, but 50% it's not.  I don't see the marked emails on the main list.  It only shows up when I click on the Junk folder.
    About a week ago, something changed and now I get 6-8 emails that shows up in my mailbox that's automatically marked as "junk", but it shows up on the main list of emails.  iCloud says "You marked this message as junk", but clearly I haven't done that.  It's not being marked based on email addresses because I get multiple messages from certain addresses and only some are being marked as junk.  I'm definitely seeing more number of emails marked as junk than before.
    So has something on iCloud's end that has changed, or is something actually marking those messages as junk (but without my intervention or knowledge)? 

    Have exactly the same problem/question -- a sudden and unexplained increase in number of false-positive junk mail in iCloud. None of it's related to any rules I've set up. Any help would be appreciated!

  • How to mark incoming mail as "junk"?

    How can I mark incoming mail as unwanted? And consequently block the address of the sender?

    Sorry, but there is no junk mail filtering on the iPad, and no way to block a sender. Your ISP may provide such filtering capability as part of their email hosting service; most do, particularly those that have a web interface to your mail account.

  • Help classifying some mail as Junk mail

    I keep getting mail that doesn't have a subject or message body, also the sender address's are always different. Can anyone tell me how to classify these as Junk Mail? Thanks.
    Here are some examples from this morning: All of which have no subject or messege body. Thus nothing for me to take and classify as junk.

    Most likely these are spam with perhaps a graphic as the body of the "message."
    More and more Mac people are receiving these if you have been reading these particular posts on this very topic. This is one main reason I have come back to the discussion area.
    You might try to find a commonality (if this can be found) among the emails, if there is any text at all within the body, or in the "View Source."
    I have resorted to making a rule for "Sender is not in my Address Book" and "Sender is not in my Previous Recipients" to be declared as "Message is Junk Mail" and to delete them.
    Hope this sheds the light you need, Paula

  • How stop iCloud from marking craigslist emails as junk?

    Craigslist has instituted a new email replay system to help avoid spam. Now all of replies to my ads are only found in iCloud junk. Is there a way to turn this off but leave other junk filtering place? How long do they stay there if I don't look at them right away?

    Not sure if it will work or not, but you could try setting up an email rule that moves them to your inbox (see http://help.apple.com/icloud/#mm6b1a3f8a).  I believe junk mail remains until you delete it (unlike your trash folder, which is automatically deleted after 30 days).

  • Having a hard time deleting some mail from junk!  Every time I delete it returns to the junk mail instantly!  Won't go away!  What's up with that

    Having a hard time deleting two junk mail messages!  I press edit , I check the message, I try to delete and a screen message appears telling me the message cannot be removed!  Not sure what to do here!  Please advise?

    Did you try swiping across the message in the preview window rather than use the Edit button? If you still can't delete the messages, quite mail and reboot the iPad and try again.
    Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Double tap the home button and the recents tray will appear with all of your recent apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
    If that still doesn't work, log into your email in a web browser and delete the junk mail there.

  • Cannot Mark Mail As Junk

    For some reason, I cannot mark mail as junk on my MacPro - using 10.10.2 Yosemite.  The junk mail icon in the toolbar is grayed out and if I control click on a message and select the mark option the option to mark as junk is grayed out.  I also have an iMac the mail app seems to be working correctly on that computer - the junk mail icon is not grayed out and I can mark a mail as junk.  Both computers are on the same version of Yosemite.

    You are welcome! Credit sterling r

  • Mark my mail as not junk

    mail is moving some of my emails to junk and i want to label it "not junk".  Can't find that option anywhere with new Yosemite os x

    Realized that only some of my junk mail allows me to mark as "not junk" and others don't have that option.  Not sure why.

  • I have two e-mail addresses and on the left hand side in mail if i expand the sent box one account has an exclamation mark appeared and some mail has deleted it's self??

    I have two e-mail addresses and on the left hand side in mail if i expand the sent box one account has an exclamation mark appeared and some mail has deleted it's self??

    You can continue to use them as Apple ID's, change the rescue address (as you know)
    You can use your iCloud address, but it won't be an alias, it's a full email address.

  • Does marking mail as "junk" in iPad Mail actually do anything?

    For a long time now, I have been using the iPad Mail facility to mark spam emails as "junk".
    However, I'm not seeing any different behavior.  The same old spam sources are sending me the same old emails which land in my inbox.
    After over a year or two of using the Junk marker, I'm thinking it's a placebo.  Am I wrong?

    A lot of it depends on your mail provider. Usually they have to block junk mail at the server - however the junkers are rather ingenious. For example they spoof addresses, or make up one, usually gibberish like [email protected] and then send their junk out and abandon the account, so blocking it is really a waste.
    YOu may not want to continue marking at the iPad level but access your mail provider via safari, for example, for me I'd use safari to go to yahoo.com and mark it as spam there. Might help with some of it. Then again, junkers have been sending stuff out unimpeeded for years now. Short of abandoning your account there's really no way to stop it all.

  • ICloud in OS X Mail 5.1 - How To Train Junk?

    If you're using iCloud Mail in OS X Lion Mail 5.1, and a new message comes in and goes straight into your iCloud Junk mailbox, how is that decided? Is Cloud making that decision, or is Mail 5.1? If it's iCloud, then how do you teach iCloud not to put certain messages in that Junk mailbox?

    Your last message isn't true.
    This morning I got an email from Amazon, except, it didn't appear in my Inbox, it went straight to the ICLOUD Junk Mailbox.
    When I select the message, the thumbs down button still shows "Mark select messages as junk". And when I go up to the menubar at the top of the screen, and click on Message > Mark, As Junk Mail is the only option. There isn't a Mark As Not Junk option.
    So what's going on? Why iCloud automatically putting new emails straight into the Junk Mailbox in Apple 5.1, but not marking them as junk?

  • When I mark a mail in the junk folder as 'not junk', is there a way to have it automatically move to the inbox?

    Apple Mail keeps putting good messages into the Junk folder. I mark them as 'not junk', but then they just sit there. It is really tedious to have to move them back to the inbox, and change the colour back to black. Is there any way to do this automatically?
    I originally placed this question on the Snow Leopard group, but since then I have updated to Lion. I was hoping that Lion would have provided a solution, but it seems not. In the Snow Leopard group, somebody posted a script which apparently works in Snow Leopard, but I have no idea if it works in Lion, as there doesn't seem to be any way to load scripts.
    This is the script, anyway.
    It was given to me by <Bernard Hills> but I don't know who wrote it.

    OK, I've discovered how to access the library.
    It's here: http://techheavy.com/2011/07/access-the-user-library-folder-in-lion/
    But I don't really want to try that script in case it screws something up. I know zero about scripting.

  • Mail app marked an email as junk, missed job opportunity. How can I fix this?

    I pipe my school email to my gmail account, which I use the mail app to view. It usually works nicely, but I was going through my junk folder and noticed I missed a job opportunity because mail app sent it to junk. This has never happened before. I am so frustrated now, and I just want to fix it, or if its a bug, blame it on somebody lol. But seriously, this is unacceptable. I'm out of a much needed job now. Please help before I lose another one!

    Maybe you just need to go to Mail > Preferences > Junk and do some more serious configuring, perhaps using the Advanced options, or at minimum, leaving Junk in your Inbox. Anyway, without seeing the email, it's hard to know why it may have been sent to Junk in the first place--too many links, maybe. (Sorry this happened to you though!)

  • Apple mail marks every last e-mail as junk

    been using it for years and worked fine. then, one day, it just started marking every last e-mail as junk. i have a .mac e-mail address. please help.

    You’re welcome.
    Note that just clicking the Reset button won’t fix the problem. What causes the problem is not a corrupt junk database, but rather a corrupt junk filter rule, which can often be fixed by just disabling the junk filter, then enabling it again.
    Resetting the junk database is meant to get rid of any wrong information that may have been stored there as a side effect of you manually marking messages as junk or not junk while the filter was behaving erratically.
