No filters on the BlackBerry for that. I think you should contact your carrier.

One way to eliminate spams is to be sure the address you create and give out in some way includes the name of your recipient. If you have that ability, it marketly reduces the number of spams in any environment, since a spammer is much less likely to spam when they have to use their own name to do it!

This is MMS spam, not email spam. There is no email address involved. It's sent via phone number.
