Mark junk mail as read in Microsoft Outlook 2007

As the title describes, I am looking for a way to mark junk email as read in Microsoft Outlook 2007.  For those who use Outlook, you know that there is a system tray icon that appears if new mail comes in to your mailbox.  I use this icon to know when I have new email waiting for me, even if I have other windows open on top of outlook.

Unfortunately, the new mail system tray icon also appears if there is new junk mail, and until I mark the new junk mail as read, it doesn't go away.  I want to have all messages in my junk mail folder be marked as read automatically, so that the system tray icon only appears for non-junk email.

It seems as though this could be accomplished with a simple mail rule, but I can't find a condition of "if message is junk mail".

Any ideas?

Haven't gone down the 2007 route yet but does your junk mail come in with "----SPAM" appended in the subject line? If it does or if you Administrator or ISP can do that you can create a blank rule that searches for that in the subject, moves it to junk and marks it as read

Any emails that are marked as spam from the mailserver on our end is automatically deleted - it doesn't even come through to my inbox or junk mail folder.  The spam I am getting right now is just newsletters that I haven't bothered to unsubscribe to, and a few real spam messages that make it through the server filter.
