Default Yahoo email spam filter

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Yahoo account and have added an account on the BB to copy the emails.
On the Yahoo email client I have a filter for spams. However on the BB I am getting all emails. A big nuisance since 90% of the emails are spams about sex aids and cheap drugs.
How do I filter these out on the BB?

Thanks

I have Yahoo account, spam filtered emails do not reach my blackberry.

If you are on Cingular, things may be different for you.

The setting isn't where you think it would be (under Spam Protection), but rather under POP & Forwarding.

On Yahoo Mail Options, go to POP & Forwarding and select "I don't want to receive any messages that SpamGuard thinks are spam".

I have tried this but I'm still getting spam (in Russian!). I have a Yahoo Plus account and I can't find anything else in it that would stop spam. Can anyone suggest anything? Please?

Are these emails going to your BULK folder? Are you forwarding?

I am forwarding and no, they're not going to the bulk folder, they're coming straight to my BB.

Stop forwarding and set up your Yahoo account on your provider's BIS web site. This will poll your Yahoo account like a POP Email program, and if set up as I posted above, all email going to your BULK folder on Yahoo won't go to your BlackBerry.

Cingular's site is https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=mycingular

Thanks Jerry. I've made the changes so I'll monitor it and post if there's any problem.

In my Yahoo! Plus mail options, Web & POP Access and Forwarding are mutually exclusive. So the spam filter is disabled if you select Forwarding.

I found that the only way to get real time delivery with spam protection was to subscribe to a hosted BES, select Forwarding and let the host's spam filter do the work that Yahoo! did previously.

BTW I am very impressed with hosted BES, in my case with Hosted Microsoft Exchange - Wireless Outlook Web Access Microsoft Exchange Hosting, Exchange Email Hosting. The speed and OTA sync raises BB functionality to a whole new level. Recommended.
