Please Login to Remove!

Hi I was wondering if someone could tell where I would find a SPAM program for my blackberry 8330. Is something like this available?

Thanks

The only one I am aware of is the AntAir Spam filters.

Spam should be filtered on the server end of your email. Prevent it from getting into your inbox and it won't go to your BB.

Are you getting lots of SPAM or just trying to prevent it? If you are getting it, are you using the carrier supplied email address? That is usually the culprit.

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

To reinforce what was was mentioned about the server, if you are using company email which uses outlook, place those emails in your junk email folder. That will minimizw the problem.
