You haven't mentioned -- is this your BIS email address, i.e. the one that has something like as part of it?

The first email address that I got for mine got nothing but spammed, it was useless the first day I had it and there's no spam filtering. Instead, what I did was (a) choose a random one that didn't have spam (worked so far! [email address], e.g.), then (b) set up an email address and use that instead as my "blackberry email" via BIS.

At least (b) allows me to have better spam control (yahoo's isn't the best, but hey - it's something) and for whatever reason T-Mobile USA + is extremely well performing, notification is instant and so forth. I still use GMail, but it doesn't seem to work as well as the Yahoo one.

(I also use that one now with their SMS alerts, like hockey scores 'n stuff being sent to me)
