    I have an Droid X 3g and have just recently set it up to receive email though the K9 app . It works fine. The problem is that this address is one we use for our business and we get 4-500 pieces of spam a day. We have filters on the server but we still get that much. On our desktop we use Outlook which has a number of filters and folders we have added to sort the mail out. Is there anything like this for the droid?

    Best practice is to either filter on the server or before the server (using a filtering service).

    Folder support is going to depend on your email account type.

    Sounds like the only solution to the problem.I wish there were a list of words that most frequently appears in spam, now that would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Sounds like you are not using an Exchange server...

    Then you need to leave outlook running and then forward the emails to your device. It can't filter if it's not running.
