New to Blackberry, just got my 7130e last week and everything is going very well. I got it set up with my yahoo account (yes, I set up the $20/year service) and am tired of getting EVERYTHING. Is there any settings I can set up either on the BB or on the yahoo account to ONLY send stuff in the inbox? Thanks for your help.

Since i'm not a 7130e owner, i'll give you some suggestions

to my knowledge of email, everything goes through the inbox, then after a filter is applied it goes to another folder to the users discretion. So naturally, you will get everything that arrives in your mailbox.

Use FILTERS available either on your BB or on the BIS account you created to forward the emails you want to your BB.

I prefer setting my FILTER to "not send to handheld if no rule is applied" then create rules for those emails i do want transfered to my BB. This helps me alot with my "thousands-a-day CC: mails which i don't care". I would guess this yould help in spam situations too.

Anyway, the FILTER (on my 7510) is available in the OPTIONS of my MESSAGES icon

Hope this helps,
have a good day
