- I have a rather strange problem I've never encountered before...or I guess noticed.
I use Penn State's Webmail System for email from school. This has an IMAP Functionality, which is how it is set up through BIS.
I'm lucky enough to receive a ridiculous amount of spam through this email address. The system catches it all as spam, and it is put into my Junk Mail Folder on the server...however, it still pushes the emails to my Blackberry, so I have to deal with deleting it.
There is no option on the online email client to disable this at all. Anybody have any ideas?05-13-09 11:09 AM

Any other ideas? I've started filtering out Spam through BIS, but then sometimes I miss real messages.05-13-09 11:13 PM
- I can't help you with this, but this thread took me back to my Penn State days. Man, I remember getting 250-300 spam messages per day...
My first time through (BS Computer Engineering) I used SpamBayes and deleted the stragglers by hand. For my second trip (Masters Software Engineering) I ended up filtering it through a GMail account which only let through one or two messages per week. A huge improvement.05-14-09 11:34 AM
unfortunately it looks like the spam is handled after it arrives there for your access is pushing all emails to the device and I pretty much believe unless they change it on there end there isn't a whole ton you can do.
You can try and set up filters but with spam they change it so much that usually you just end up adding filters everyday on your bis.05-14-09 11:38 AM
