I haven't have any problem!

Try setting up the filters on your yahoo acct to filter the spam out

After you set-up the filters you should see a significant decrease in spam. I know I did.

i have this problem, but that's because this idiot kid decides it's funny to spam the "invite a friend" button on gmail... i got 250 new emails during class one day... so my next point, not to change the subject too much, is there a way to block an email address?

Yes, at your AT&T BIS site, use filters.
Set the filter up so that if the particular email address is the sender, it does not forward to device.
Where can I log into my BIS account? - BlackBerryFAQ

You can also increase your spam settings in your Yahoo account.
