How to Mark Spam Mail on an iPhone?

When you mark emails as spam on your iPhone, it means that you are moving them to the Junk folder. If you consider a single email as spam and move it to the Junk folder, the Mail app on your iPhone will automatically treat all the incoming emails from the same sender as spam. So, all the future emails from that particular sender will be moved to Junk. Even after you move an email to Junk, you can still open and read it. You can either mark a single email as spam or mark multiple emails as spam (at once) and move them to the Junk folder.
