I can't get any emails to go to my 8800 from one forum I'm on. The forum had been overtaken by some spam-bots a while back and since then all of their emails have been flagged as spam. How do I mark them as not-spam?
*edit* I'm not using any third party software and my carrier is T-Mobile

I'm not getting any spam at all, the problem is I'm not receiving anything from StuntFactoryX.com. They were going into my bulk folder when I was using my Yahoo email until I marked them as 'not spam' but when I try to use @tmo.blackberry.net, I don't receive anything.
I'm not sure I understand -- are you forwarding your Yahoo mail to your @tmo.blackberry.net email, or did you change your email address at the site to the tmo email address?
Most people recommend not using the carrier email address for anything becaue there are no spam filters for it and once it starts getting spammed, it never stops. It would be much better to set up Yahoo email on your Blackberry.
I'm not forwarding anything from my other non-BB accounts. I get tons of spam on them no matter how many times I flag them and I've read more than enough of the horror stories on here about filters not working. I only have forums sending email to my BB account and it's as simple as deleting the account from T-Mobiles website to stop any spam if I might get any, which I'm not. I appreciate your concern but my worry isn't about receiving spam.
Just to clarify things:
This is NOT a 'how to stop SPAM?' thread
I'm not forwarding email, nor do I ever plan to
I'm using my BB email account(BIS, whatever you call it)
I'm not receiving email from only one website(on BB only)
I want to know why I'm not receiving it(on BB only)
I want to know how to receive it(on BB only)
I'm not using any spam software
My carrier is T-Mobile and the spam filter is OFF
ditto what Berry One said. Scrap the TMo email address and use a gmail address. As I have stated above you need to be able to "white list" your preferred emails and forums, etc., and using the TMo account is not the way to do it.
