I used to get no SPAM whatsoever. I have been getting more spam than usual lately. However, I have had only one slip through the spam filter. Very impressive

I've had about 3 total today that slipped through....and what's weird is they're all for prescription drugs.

"ORDER NOW - XANAX, AMBIEN!!!!!!"
"Buy legal XANAX now"
"VALIUM refill is ready"

(Ok, who told that I've been stressed out lately!!?? The dr gave me a prescription for them, honest!!) haha

Is your mail server spam protection maybe failing?

Most providers don't filter the spam coming into their networks and expect their blackberry customers to setup filters under there BB web accounts to filter as much as possible.

If you have your own email/bes server you need to make sure your email server spam filter software is up-to-date.
