    Your desktop email program evidently has a spam filter. You want to filter at the account, not at the desktop or the phone. How you do that depends on your email provider. If it's gmail, go to GMail, find a spam message, click More, click "Filter messages like these", set up the filtering - subject, sender, whatever you want to filter on, click on "Create filter with this search", check the Delete box, check the "Also apply" box and click Create filter.

    With a 500GB hard drive, it's easy to keep a good set of filters on a PC, with 64GB of storage on a phone, it would eat half your storage, so no one's ported POPfile (probably the best email filter in a long time) to Android.
