    Hi. Does anyone know how I can stop Spam e mails coming through to my Passport? For some reason I am getting loads of them lately. I have successfully stopped them on my desktop by marking them as spam but they still come through to my Passport and it is driving me to distraction. Is there a setting or something else I should have done on the Passport? Thanks.

    There are apps such as SpamBox which work well.

    Thank you. Have downloaded Spambox and set it for e mails. Fingers crossed it will work for me.

    Thanks from me too. I was looking for a simple call blocker. I hope it can block unwanted calls right off the call list as well.

    So your phone gets the spam before your email marks it as spam? That doesn't happen to me. What service are you using?

    I use Hotmail. Everything on my desktop is now automatically going to the junk folder but it still arrives on my phone. Trying the app I was told about a few posts ago, so hopefully this nightmare can stop!

    Make sure you didn't set the device email to sync the spam/junk folder. If you did, disable sync for that folder.

    Handling Spam on a client device is never good. Spam must be handled once for all clients on the mail server. Every modest mail server provides facilities for defining filters, much better than your BB device does. You should configure what you need there. Otherwise all the spam is pumped through the mobile network and causes idiotic traffic and battery drain. And if you have multiple clients this gets a multidimensional problem.

    Just checked and junk was on sync. Now disabled. Thank you.
