Default Anti-spam for Blackberry

This is a bit off-topic but you never know, someone might have an answer...

How do you fix spam if you get most of your email on a Blackberry first, before you login to your PC?

The guy who is asking me this has a domain email account, like fred@example.com.

He gets his email direct from the domain registrar, not through a website. The domain registrar doesn't seem to have any anti-spam protection.

I've no idea what OS a Blackberry runs so I can't comment on the client hardware / software end. I guess if it was me I'd get a small web hosting account for starters, that's about $8 a year, and you can filter some of it out straight away with cPanel (SpamAssassin etc).

Don't know if you can use the Cloudmark service on a mobile. Over 2 U

It's working really well, so I'm told. He gets 50 emails a day, 45 are spam. The widget is trashing all the spam so far.

Bit steep @ $45 but it depends what it's worth to the guy, I guess.
