    So I have a hotmail account that I use as my primary email. My gmail is only used for google stuff so it can keep a low profile and not get hacked. My problem with hotmail is there is no good mobile app to mark items as junk. When I get spam in my inbox with the default samsung email app I can mark it as spam but not junk. That does me no good because it doesn't tell hotmail that it is junk and keep future emails from landing in my inbox. The only way to keep that from happening is to mark as junk. And I can only seem to do that from my pc in outlook.com. Even the outlook app for android doesn't have that option. So does anybody have any suggestions?

    By definition, if you mark something as spam, it is junk. As long as when it is marked as spam by the samsung app, they put it into the Junk folder, then you should be good. The way a spam filter on the server works, is that it looks for mails sent to that folder. Our app (MailDroid) will allow you to set the folder for spam and I believe other third party apps will also allow that in case the Samsung app does not.

    If junk mail is such a big issue, why don't you unsubscribe from that sender?

    I do on the ones that are in English. However ones in Spanish and Chinese I don't even begin to know where to click.

    That's just it, the spam folder is a whole new folder created by the stock samsung app and is not the recommended junk folder of outlook. It is no different than me creating a recipes or reciepts folder...it just another folder.

    Then I'd suggest trying our app or one of the other third party apps. MailDroid allows settings the folders sync'd to the server for spam, trash, draft, and archive. If this is POP3 (which it does not sound like it), then you would of course still need a local spam folder as POP does not see folders from the server.
