If you mean your blackberry.net email address, your out of luck. There's no easy way to filter.

Yahoo's and Google's filters work well, and you can set them up so that whatever they filter as SPAM doesn't reach your BlackBerry. Search the forums for info on setting that up.

In short, your source needs to have this type of filtering.

Moved to suitable section. Sharmila, please have a good look around the site so you're familiar as to which headings certain subjects fall under and also we ask that you do not double post. There is also a great search facility at the top of the page.

Thanks, and welcome to BBF by the way! You can introduce yourself in the new members area!!

Well, I started getting spam on the BB as well, but through my Yahoo account. The yahoo spam filter only allows, from what I can tell, e-mail address filtering, but not "keyword" filtering ont he subject or the contents. I therefore went to the T-Mo BIS, and setup sopme filters there to NOT send e-mail to the device with the word "sex" and several variations of the word, in it, but they are not working either.

Anyone know why the BIS filter might not be catching the spam?
