Depends on the type of mail account. In case you have a POP3 account, your mail will get downloaded anyway. POP3 doesn't supprt direct deletion from the Srevr.

If you have SMTP, you may do it by creating rules that apply on the server side. Consult your network admin for asssisteance.

Maybe your ISP has some junk mail protection...

A popular one is called POSTINI.  It will quarantine messages before they reach the mail server if it believes they are junk mail.  This way, you never see the junk mail in your inbox.
