Default Don't own a blackberry but getting "carry data" messages anyway

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I hope you people can help me,

I don't have an BlackBerry, but since yesterday I'm receiving about 5 "This message is used to carry data between the BlackBerry handheld and an associated server" messages per hour.

And I would like to find a way to stop them from coming...

Is there a way to find out how I'm getting these, from whom, or to cantact BlackBerry Inc. to tell them to turn sending these messages off?

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

Have you installed Desktop Manager on your PC recently?

I keep getting odd emails from RIM - BlackBerryFAQ

Did you, or someone, install "BlackBerry Desktop Manager" on your PC or laptop?

If so, uninstall it. That is generating the messages.

Default no blackberry software

Thanks for replying.

No one installed any blackberry software on our clients as far as I know.

And if I open the attached DAT file in a HEX editor I see my mailaddress in there.
Can I presume that this means that someone has inserted my email address in his BB as mail address to open?

I haven't touched a BB in two years and have never used or installed any BB software, so I'm really confused as to why I'm getting these emails.

Any further help would be really appeciated.
