When I went to reset my spam trap account on iCloud, to see how it operates, I was presented with:

select how you want to unlock your account


spam account

Why is my "real" account worse-protected by not allowing me to reset the password?

My "spam trap" account had been initialized, also, but at least I was able to login. I'm iulius224 for some reason -- but there appears no real problem. Nor, really, does it matter whether the account is compromised unless it somehow leads back to my "real account.

How do I get an unlock e-mail for my actual, non-dummy, account? And, why is my dummy, spam-trap account, so easily able to manage, while my "real" account cannot be managed at all?
