I had read the FAQ on whitelisting, but it seemed to miss the actual need
for blackberry users. Blackberry users that want to use the desktop
redirector need to watch a giving mailbox (or boxes) and that is the box
that takes the synchronization messages, so short of having a rule that
copies all mail to another box, whitelisting is the only answer I could
That said, I have been having better luck with training, and seem to have
got spambayes "hamming" my blackberry.net messages now.
The timer issue works the other way, I need to slow down the blackberry, it
seems to grab the spam from the inbox before spambayes kicks it into the
spam folder. This happens even if I turn off background filtering or set
the filter time to 0.0 seconds (if only I could set it to a negative number
<grin> and filter the mail before it arrived).

You may be able to solve this by adjusting the timer values. In the
SpamBayes Manager dialog, look at the Advanced tab, and try different timer
values. The idea behind the background filtering is that SpamBayes waits
for a certain period of time after Outlook tells it that there is new mail
before processing it. The aim is to have SpamBayes run after all Outlook
