Default Anti-spam software

Please Login to Remove!

This is going to sounds like spam itself as it is only my second post but I want to put something back into the forum...

For some time I've been plagued by spam. Okay, it's not as bad as Outlook but up to 10 messages a day.

After months of searching I came across some anti-spam software called Antair.

It's a bit of a strange recommendation actually because it doesn't work for me. The developer explained why and I don't really want to reveal the reason here and help out any future spammers.

Anyway, I've read a lot of positive reviews for the product so you may want to give it a go.

Good to know, I just checked out their website. I don't have a problem with spam on my BB, very minimal. But the product looks viable, accepts most all RIM products it appears.

Here's the link if anyone is interested...
Antair - BlackBerry Spam Filter


This probably should be moved to the Aftermarket forum.

Waste of money! $50 for a program that decides all by itself, without even letting you know, if an email is spam then deletes it, never again to be found??? NO THANKS!

According to the FAQ: 'The filtered spam messages will still be available in the INBOX or SPAM folder of your desktop e-mail application if you have the need to check on it.'

True JSanders, unless you are getting an inordinate amount of spam, delete the few you get. I maybe get 1 a day. Not a big enough problem for me to shell out $50.
