    Default So Much SPAM I am getting on my Blackberry Email

    Is anyone else getting tons of SPAM email on their Black Berry email accounts?
    Seems I get everything from how to meet chicks to lower my bills to how to get a hard on and I keep unsubscribing and they just keep coming.

    Is there anyway to block this crap?

    so many of them give the option to unsubscribe and the link does not work.

    I guess these freaks have nothing else to do

    The unsubscribe link is a scam... it just lets the spammer know your account is active

    Basically what happens with spam is that when you click the unsubscribe link you are confirming your email address is working to the spammer. So now they know 1) the email address works 2) you actually open the messages. Legitimate companies have real unsubsribe links, but if its spam, don't click any links in the message.

    I used to get a lot of SPAM, but since my company upgraded the Outlook system to the most recent platform, it has stopped.
