How to better delete junk email

I am using Outlook 2000.  I get a lot of junk email and so far have to right click on the mail, click Junk E-Mail, click Add to Junk Senders List and then hit the Delete key.  This adds the email address to the Junk Filter and then deletes it from my mailbox.  This only works one email at a time it will not work for multiple selections.
I would like to be able to highlight all the junk emails, click one button and they all get added to the filter and then deleted.
Is there a better way to do this?  It is taking way too much time and key strokes.

Thanks,
  Castle

http://www.slipstick.com/rules/junkmail.htm will work better since there is a . at the end of Neo's link (shame on you :)).  You could always change your email address and be careful who you give it out to.  Are you willing to go with an add-in?  If so, there are a few good add-ins that will take care of junk mail for you at that link.

Give http://www.slipstick.com/emo/2002/up020130.htm a look.  It seems to have some pretty inclusive rules and tips.
