Default 7100i spam blocker?

Please Login to Remove!

Well i love getting my emails but i really hate getting all the spam. I use outlook for my computer and then of course it goes through the BB and none of the Spam gets blocked because theres no Spam Blocker....so is there a way or is it just one more think i have to live with?

Somedays i get around 15 emails a day and 10 of them are spam.

Your email provider should offer some sort of spam blocking. Bis 2.1 has a very very weak spam blocker supposedly. Its never blocked any of mine that get through gmail though.

all my emails work through my work. I use my work accounts and im the webmaster and tech and i still cant seem to block these. I get all sorts of them...

i hate laying on the couch and gettting excited because i have an email and then realise "oh crap its just spam"...

if your on BIS you can set up filters in your account itself.

Personally i don't have any issues w/ BIS 2.1 filters - i have my main ones set to "do not forward to handheld" and then have a filter set up to forward only email that was sent to me or cc'd to me

I get no SPAM this way
even w/o this filter on my Yahoo! account i don't get the email that's in my SPAM filter where as w/ BIS 1.8 i did - so i find them stronger; not weaker
