    Hey there everyone, I am completely surprised that I couldn't find any previous posts that discuss adding a SPAM filter to the 700W. I have my own website and ISP and while I have SPAM filtering on at the ISP level there are still quite a few emails that make it through.

    Anyhow, does anyone know how to add a SPAM filter to the 700W? I tried the Fortinet client, however, that is only for SMS SPAM.

    When I say SPAM filter I am referring to the type of SPAM filtering that happens with Outlook on the desktop. Where it automatically moves the filtered items to the JUNK MAIL folder.

    I use Exchange and my e-mail goes thru MX Logic before it gets to me and they filter out spam and viruses. It works great. I rarely get spam in my inbox.

    Sounds like that would be an option, however, I am connecting directly to the SMTP server instead of routing it through Exchange.

    Any other suggestions out there?

    This is a pretty nice tool but the downside is it connects to your SMTP server before making a decision on if it is spam or not. And I would have to check each item before it executes.

    There has to be a better way. The native behavior embedded in Outlook for the desktop would work perfectly.

    Any other ideas?

    What does spam have to do with an SMTP server? Am I completely ignorant?

    Well let me rephrase this a bit. My webhosted mailbox which uses POP3/SMTP to transport emails contains a bunch of SPAM. I would like for my Treo to sort out the junk email once the emails are downloaded.

    I should have never referred to it as an SMTP server, sorry about that. My bad.

    He wants a filter to keep him from sending out spam. hehe

    I'm not 100% sure but I'm like 95% sure such an add on to Outlook mobile does not exist.

    I think most people want to avoid downloading the mail/wasting bandwidth in the first place, hence the design. Plus it's just easier to implement since it's external to Outlook.

    This would actually be useful if I could install it on my father in laws desktop. Stop those forwards from 2002!
