Default spam mail?

Please Login to Remove!

I am starting to get a ton a spam all of the sudden. I am positive its on my BB account, an account I have never ever typed anywhere on the internet. Hell, I couldnt even remember my BB email until I called today to get it. Is there a way to stop my BB from checking this email account?

If you only use your BB in a BES enviornment, do you have any other e-mail address asociated with the BB? It would seem that if you use the BWC then you would have another e-mail address...

Make sure you are not broadcasting your personal blackberry email address!! Also, it could be the account that you are forwarding from. Make sure to NEVER give out that personal bb email. Is it on a site? Did you share it or register it?

Likely a result of the Sober.o mass mailing worm that's increasing in popularity since its discovery on 5/2/05.
