If you are using BIS and it sounds like you are, you must apply tighter spam controls on the server end BEFORE it reachesd your in box. I am not aware of a BB device level spam control software.

You really do have to filter before the mail reaches BIS.

You'll need to address this at each of your individual email addresses since there isn't anything at the BB level to manage spam. Right now, there isn't that elusive "all in one" spam solution.
