Apple Well paint me red and call me a girl scout. "In its latest push to get porn off your computer, Apple now deletes all iCloud emails that contain the phrase 'barely legal teens'. It doesn't send the messages to spam, or flag them, it just straight up deletes them, and there's nothing you can do about it." So, at least we can finally put that silly myth to rest that Apple respects users' privacy. They scan your emails, including attachments, just like everyone else.

Did you try it yourself?

It doesn't look like Apple deletes all mails with these words, it only deletes spam messages with these words.

This said, if the "hospital" message registers as spam according to the filter you won't see it. So don't rely too much on mail.
