Job listing points to improved anti-spam measures for iCloud Mail

Apple still overcoming spam-related issues

Apple is looking to build better protections against spam and other abuse in iCloud Mail, a new job listing suggests. The company is hiring a senior software engineer who will help "define and implement new mail anti-abuse systems" for iCloud. The person is expected to have experience with email and spam technology, and qualities like "a strong background in building high-performance, scalable and extensible systems."

iCloud Mail users continue to complain about problems with spam, despite Apple attempts to deal with them, such as an spam reporting system in OS X Mail. iCloud's own automatic spam filters have sometimes backfired, blocking otherwise legitimate messages because they contain keywords associated with potential spam sources, such as pornography websites.

    ...or perhaps improve them as Apple intends to do with their spam filters. :)
