SPAM Filtering?

I am surprised that a search of this forum found no mention of SPAM.

Has there been any discussion of BIS providing some sort of SPAM filtering? I am a subscriber of one of the major ISPs and am not thrilled with the server-side SPAM filtering provided. Would be nice if something like SPAM Assassin or Trend Micro was available via the BIS service.

Any comments or suggestions?

Re: SPAM Filtering?

Check this program out, as it installs directly on the BlackBerry:


Antair: BlackBerry Spam Filter


The other option would be to use a different e-mail address, like a Gmail address, and forward all mail from your ISP account to the Gmail account. Then you could only set up the Gmail account on your BlackBerry and let Gmail's SPAM filters (as well as filters you create) filter out all the SPAM. That way you could cut down on the amount of SPAM received.
