iPhone vs Spam

Michael Tsai “just issued a refund to a customer who bought SpamSieve under the assumption that it would run on his iPhone.” Unfortunately, the iPhone has no anti-spam features. When I expect to be making serious use of email on my iPhone, I try to leave a computer running (Mac OS X) Mail. This does have spam filtering, and since the email accounts I use are all IMAP, there’s no contention for which device gets the mail.

BTW, SpamSieve is a great spam filter for Mac OS X. I use it with Eudora (and a POP account). It’ll work with Mail as well, but I guess inertia keeps me from setting that up (besides the fact that Mail has been trained well enough that it does a pretty good job on its own).
