    Only way for the time being, while you take the walk to your ball after teeing off, is to hit options-security options-firewall-enable-check bb internet service and check "except from contacts" or "specific addresses". Have a great round of golf. I am a club golfer.

    Stop using that account, and get a free Yahoo! Mail or Gmail account and use that. They both have excellent Spam filters.

    I have a Yahoo! Mail Plus! account ($25/year) and I get my email instantaneously! Don't know if the same holds true for free accounts.

    I have a free gmail account and it works great.I get my email instantly too,or so it seems to me.I also found out just how great the spam protection lately,when I checked a saw over 2100 spam emails blocked that I had no idea existed and it deletes them for me once a month.I am relieved big time I'm not getting that load of spam delivered.lol that would suck.

    Can anybody explain how to set up a tmo.blackberry.net email address with the Gmail spam filter? I've been trying this and can't seem to figure out how. PIN me, BBM me (best way of getting in contact with me) or reply here. Thanks in advance for any help.
