Most people associate emails with Gmail as it is one of the most widely used email services. However, Apple provides its users with iCloud, which is its own email service. Just like Gmail, iCloud accounts can also be targeted by spam emails. If you are receiving too many spam and unnecessary emails, you might happen to skip an important email on iCloud.
To avoid such situations, you can identify some of the most frequent email ids from which you receive spam emails and block them on iCloud.
