I am thinking about getting a WM device that will work with our Exchange Server 2003 (and my laptop). I like the idea of being notified when new mail arrives at the server (according to the setting) BUT would not like to se all the junk mail come down on to the WM device. At the moment Outlook (on the laptop) automatically 'Junks' about 60 per day.

My  recently got a Blackerry from her company and she is constantly deleteing the junk mail on the device. To delete she has to open the mesage first - it is a real pain (unless she is doing something wrong). More like a Blackthorn than a sweet Blackberry!

I would appreciate comments on the WM question. In fairness to Blackberry, would like to know how she can get her IT people to prevent the junk mail from being pushed to the device.

It is not a Windows Mobile problem. Your company or provider should really have a server side anti-spam solution. There's one already built-in on Exchange Server, called IMF. A bit tricky to set on Exchange Server 2003 but it works well, with automatic updates from Microsoft.

The worst day it filtered 2000 spam messages into th junk folder. On a daily basis I don't get many in my inbox - if any at all.

MF is right - deal with your spam on the server side. Prevent it getting to your mailbox to start with, and your problem doesn't exist.
