I think everyone is missing what the poster is asking.
I don't read his question as wanting to automatically
delete any email that
Outlook deems as 'junk' email. I think he is asking that, in Outlook 2003 you
can select an email, and in the 'Actions' menu under 'Junk Email Options' you
can select 'add to junk senders list'. When doing this, I agree that it would
be nice if there was a way to also delete this email at the same time rather
than selecting email, navigating to 'add to junk senders list' and then
having to hit delete (or shift+delete and then enter to confirm).
Even better would be to have a hot key (like
ctrl+J) that would add to junk
sender list and delete.
The fact that it is manually being added to the junk list kind of confirms
that the sender does not want the email. In fact, I remember creating or
having a button that would do exactly what I describe above.
