Default Redirector and Spam

Please Login to Remove!

I have a home PC with Outlook on it. It downloads my mail every 10 minutes or so. I have been using SpamBayes to filter span and it works perfectly.

I have tried adding the Registry Key of "ProcessMailDelay" to delay the forwarding of my mail until after Spam had been filtered. Sounds good, but it hasn't worked yet.

Has anyone been able to get this to work? Any other suggestions for preventing spam being redirected to handheld?

I remember reading some threads about people using Spamcop in this situation to block the spam. Unfortunately, the redirector (and even some BES) tend to forward mail before the spam/junk mail filters are run.

You can use Inboxer. It's a commercial product built on top of Spambayes. It has a plugin called Popboxer that can redirect (with "from" address intact) email that survives the spam filter to another address, e.g. the address of the Blackberry web client.

The software works well, although documentation is slim to nonexistent and support consists of one-sentence off-topic emails from the developer. It's the only thing I've found that lets you use a local spam filter without BES or Exchange Server/Desktop Redirector.
