Default BB Webclient Comment

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everybody

Just adding spamfilters to my webclient, again, a daily ritual. What amazes me over and over is how basic this application is and how poor its capabilities are. I receive important email at any time of the day, and spam at 3am is pretty annoying. Why doesn't RIM implement a client similar to Mozilla's Thunderbird. What a wonderful program this is. I get the same email with it as i do with my BB, and Thunderbird successfully filters ALL the spam. It even learns the pattern in the spammed messages and it hasn't made a mistake in what it filters yet. You click on a spam message, mark it as "spam", and Thunderbird takes care of it from there, even if the spam message changes slightly. Also, when is RIM going to filter spam originating from obviously open and insecure proxies and ISP's well known for not giving a damn how much spam originates from accounts on their network? RIM, here is what you do, hire a few whitehat teenagers every summer and spam would be largly history within a month.

If you're getting a lot of spam...why not try forwarding your accounts through gmail...do a search for gmail forward.

Definitely forwarding via g-mail is the way to go.

Yes i agree, yahoo and gmail spamfilters are far better and i'm aware of it, but the point is, we all use a very high quality product in the BB, so why does RIM drop the ball by mating it with such a poor webclient? We pay good money for the equipment and the service, we shouldn't have to compromise in such a fundamental way and resort to all kinds of bandaid solutions.

Don't fight it....just assimilate. GMAIL rules big time. It is almost as if they have CUSTOM TAILORED their email product towards blackberry users. The ability to get a sick smooth set-up is probably somewhat orchestrated on their part.
