Cool Suddenly getting Yahoo Spam!

Please Login to Remove!

I've been getting my yahoo mail (my primary account) on my BB without problem since I bought it a few days ago.

Suddenly I am getting all the spam that goes to my bulk folder on Yahoo delivered to my BB. I get a lot of spam, but the spam detector on Yahoo is very good at putting it to bulk.

How can I go back to how it was (i.e. not getting the spam on my BB)?

thanks

So are you saying that email that is in your "bulk" folder is getting forwarded? Or are you saying email that should go to "bulk" is being forwarded.

Just my "inbox" is forwarded but I have noticed that Spam will get through every now and then from my Yahoo account to my BB. I delete it from my BB but then I go to Yahoo and make sure to mark it as "Spam". As you said the yahoo spam detector is good but it is a battle that you continually wage.

Now if you were getting spam sent directly to your BB email address, then I would worry.

FYI, I find that every once in a while Yahoo Bulk seems to hiccup and a bunch of SPAM ends up in my Inbox. It usually clears up after a day or so.

To clear things up, messages from the bulk folder were coming to the Blackberry.

Appears it was, as Kurichan said, a hiccup, as it hasn't come since yesterday afternoon.

Let's hope this continues.

Thanks for your help.
