Most options are available in the setting --> email account --> options & notification, etc.
The email system may tend to understand which email address are important as by knowing which are frequently used &or communicated.
This is a learning process, and once you are familiar how it work, then by always "sync" will delivery those email address often used &or important to you, instead for all messages.
As when using computer to sort and remove those unnecessary spam messages.

I am a little concerned that my email '.com' account is business account and I may not receive up to date business emails on my phone but I will give it a try.

First, you may need to understand how Gmail work. (as example on any webmail)
Gmail messages are store physically in the website, Gmail server.
When someone send you a message, your Gmail will received and store it.
When you use computer to log in and view your messages.
These messages are NOT download to your computer.
Any action, such as; delete, read, send,; these will take immediate effect.
There is no action on the computer as it do not have &or store all these messages.
On mobile phone.
When you enable, "Sync" the Gmail on the phone.
Once there is a connection, either thru mobile data or wireless, this "sync" will auto DOWNLOAD messages (which is not available) to your mobile phone.
If your phone is always Online, which enable mobile data &or wireless.
Any message receive in the Gmail server will also be download to your phone.
Incoming message --->>> Gmail server --->>> mobile phone "Online".
Computer do not save any messages as any action is active &or live.
Any changes made will be reflect in the Gmail server of your account.
But in the mobile phone, whenever any message arrived, it will be saved in your phone.
It is not 2-ways, but only ONE way, that is to download messages not available on your phone.
So, by enable "SYNC" and if the connection is ONLINE, messages arrived in Gmail server will be send and download to your phone.
But if you do not "sync" your Gmail account.
So, when you at this moment to sync your Gmail account, your messages will then be download to the phone.
If you had made some deletion in the computer earlier, you will not have those messages that were deleted in the phone.
The ANSWER to your solution is to turn OFF the "sync" on the mobile phone for Gmail.
Btw, any messages deleted will be found in the Trash folder of the Gmail.
Only spam messages will be deleted from the Gmail server.
Hope this will clarify on your current problem.

joephone, 07 Feb 2017That's not a phone problem. It's an email problem. Duh.....Thanks joephone I understand that. On my computer I can instruct the system to automatically move certain emails to my deleted file but they keep coming back on my phone and I cannot find a way to instruct the phone to either block or move these emails. It's not simply deleting each one as they keep coming back. Is there a permanent solution.
Disappointed. This phone worked perfectly fine for a year but then the battery was damaged ... I bought the wireless charger but in vain! ... seriously, whatever happened to keeping the removable battery option? ... the screen was broken last month and I cannot fix it ... I don't recommend this phone and won't be using Samsung phones again!
Help please. Can anyone help me to move or block incessant spam coming through my emails on my s6 android version 6.01. I can easily delete them as they come in but that doesn't stop them coming back and usually the same rubbish but from a different email address. Some people have nothing better to do than bombard you with spam. Frustrating!
