I used to forward all my emails to my gmail account. With the blackberry I can only reply from my gmail account,I can't reply from my other accounts so I had to add each individual account.
I am now getting tons of spam that gmail would filter out and my current account doesn't, even though it filters all my email a lot still get though.

How do I stop this spam? I am using BIS and barely check my mail on the computer anymore.

Also, is there anyway to reply from a different account? I forward three different and seperate account to my gmail and gmail let's me pick the account but the BB email doesn't let me do that.

You've already figured it out. Forwarding doesn't allow you to reply FROM that account. Go through BIS and add your acounts. In terms of your spam, you can set up filters on your BIS as well. I use gmail through my BIS and I get no spam. Gmail catches it.

My gmail catches all the spam, but my personal email doesn't.

Filters. It's the only way. I personally have only email from people in my address book get through to my inbox. I occasionally have to peruse my spam box for senders that I want to add to my address book, but that's no big deal.

How do you set up a filter for that?

Filters on BIS are managed via your carrier's BIS site (same place you set up the email accounts). If you can get some real spam filtering on your email account(s) I'd highly recommend it. Manually filtering spam with the BIS filters is like trying to paddle upstream with one oar, IMO.
