Default Spam email forwarded from my earthlink acct

Please Login to Remove!

I have my Blackberry 7100T configured to get email messages sent to my earthlink account. On that earthlink acct, I've configured the earthlink spam filter such that it catches about 90% of the junk. But T-Mobile's BB web client apparently gets the messages "upstream" of the spam filter, and has no spam filter of its own (the Filter function on the T-Mobile web client is all but useless).

How can I get my earthlink email forwarded to my BB to be passed through a spam filter? I've seen references to "spamcop", but I don't know if that would work for me (I'm not in a corporate environment).

The folks at T-Mobile's Blackberry division "are aware of the problem and are working on it". That's not much help. I've gotten over 200 email messages on my BB today, 90% of which were junk.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.
