Hello. I have a question to ask you.

How do I make a rule in Outlook 2007, 2010, and Windows Live Mail 2011 (latest version =  Build 15.4.3538.0513) where anything specific in the subject line (title) itself will be automatically placed in the "Deleted items" folder automatically when using the latest Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2011 and more specifically Symantec's Norton's E-Mail Protection component/feature that has an automatic naming/labeling feature with an e-mail's subject/title line when it detects SPAM?

For example: The phrase "[Norton Spam]" without the quotes is labeled as the first bit of information preceding whatever information in the subject line when Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2011 finds incoming e-mail SPAM. However, 'some' of the noted SPAM e-mail is placed in the "Deleted Items" Folders and 'some' is STILL placed in the "Inbox" where obviously, I do not want it there. Thus for over the course of approximately 6 months, I have had 100% success in that Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2011 has appropriately labeled ACTUAL e-mails that were INDEED SPAM, but not placing 'some' of the SPAM e-mails where they need to appropriately be -- in the "Deleted Items' folder.Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2011 labels or names the SPAM e-mails FIRST AND THEN whatever e-mail client I am using from the ones provided above, is 'supposed to' place it in the "Deleted Items' folder which is not always 'efficient' as you can see. I have not found a false positive yet with Symantec's Norton's E-Mail Protection component/feature. So at this time, I 'believe strongly' I can depend on it.  

Please provide your own detailed steps, facts, suggestions, hints, and tips; and/or the best possible well written, detailed and documented website links.

DO NOT USE LMGTFY.com or similar-like web links in your reply. I consider its use very unprofessional for EE experts. If you do, you will not get acknowledged and receive no credit.

Please reply.

Thank you!

Not sure if there is some catch you are running into, but just to do what you ask:

go to menu item 'Tools'
go to 'rules and alerts'
click 'new rule'
select 'move messages with specific words in subject to a folder'
click the link at the bottom 'specific words' to edit the text; edit the substring and click 'add' and 'ok'
click 'next' on wizard
make sure 'move to specified folder' is clicked.  edit (or add) the folder by clicking 'specified folder'' link at bottom
click 'finish'

Hello. Nice to meet you. Thank you for your comment. I see no one else has commented, so I will close this thread now. The answer and solution provided in the comment above is accurate after testing it.

Yes, I see your instructions in your posting above are applicable to Outlook 2007 and 2010. I did some of my own researching for Windows Live Mail 2011 (latest version) and found it pretty intuitive and simple to figure out.

Steps:  "Folders" (tab) -> "Email rules" in "Rules" window (should open to "Email rules" by default) -> "New" button -> the rest is self-explanatory and intuitive and easy to follow.

Again, thank you for your Outlook steps in your last comment.
