    There's no good solution at the moment for spam other than filtering through an email account integrated with BIS that has spam filtering (like gmail, for example). I generally don't recommend using the *.blackberry.net address anyway as it doesn't help with spam prevention.

    Re: email spam

    I started getting spam 3 or 4 months ago. i get maybe 3 or 4 emails a week and they are all about stocks. I have been tempted to purchase a few but that thought quickly fades when I remember the tip was spam.

    here is what it looks like...

    Andersons family had accused county and state officials of attempting to cover up what happened
    but Ober said there is no evidence by any public official or agency to undermine or improperly influence this investigation
    The boot camp in Bay County was closed in early May 2005 The sheriffs office said the
    closure had nothing to do with Andersons case but also said the eight people involved in the incident were not offered new jobs

    and they are ALWAYS similar to this.
