    I have been getting a lot of Chinese spam sometimes 3-5 times a day. I can't seem to filter it out. Each message is in Chinese characters and each is different. Is there any way I can set my Droid to not accept any email with alpha-numeric characters?

    Is it through your gmail account?

    If so there are some settings on the web I believe.

    Who is the provider? Do they have spam filters available on the back end? My provider does.

    Provider has general spam filtering, but no possibility to filter a particular address or character set. I did make a filter in Thunderbird that is catching the span on my computer, however it still makes it to the phone.
