You should be able to create a Rule that will move any incoming email with the culprit email address to the Deleted Items folder.

OK-instead of into  deleted items folder.. can it be blacklisted.. so it never even comes to the box..

Talk to your email/Exchange admin to see if you have a spam filtering service in place, like Postini.

yobri, are you recommending the admin team to add this email id as a spam email? this would lead them to take responsibility for that.. i was hoping to control to my email id only.. any thoughts?
