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.

It is real. My iCloud mailbox is almost spam-free, thanks to Apple automatic spam deletion. The spam mails don't go in my spam folder they are filtered on the server. I consider it is a service Apple does for me.

I have a different e-mail address for personal mails, in part because I know that iCloud has mail filtering so I could miss something. If you don't ask them to nobody will see your e-mails, and to my knowledge Apple don't do any data collection.
