How can I permanently delete files in my Junk Email folder that meet certain criteria

I receive many emails that my filter automatically moves to the Junk Email folder as soon as they arrive. Many of those emails I actually want to respond to so every now and then I look in the folder and move them back to my Inbox.

However there are certain emails that I would like to permanently delete as soon as they arrive, e.g. ones that have the sender name that contains "Online Casino" (they come in from various bogus email addresses). Can anyone help me figure out how to trap them so I can permanently delete them?

Sure use Outlook Rules,
http://www.wikihow.com/Manage-Email-Using-Microsoft-Outlook-Rules

http://www.it.cornell.edu/services/outlook/howto/email/rules.cfm

http://its.uiowa.edu/support/article/1069

You can easily setup a rule to permanently delete messages that contain "Online Casino".


Also you can right-click emails in Junk and add them to a safe senders list so the won't land in junk anymore

Hi tailoreddi, I clicked on the wrong message first and totally missed your message. Your answer was first so I should have awarded points to you. Do you know how I go about reallocating?

My comment was included thinking that outlook spam email was not your only concern... (Hotmail, G mail, Yahoo, etc. )
   
I have clicked "Request Attention" to ask a moderator to re-allocate points as you now have asked to do so.

I have re-allocated the points because : tailoreddigital  was first to provide the answer I needed, I just missed it. I shared the points because both answers contributed to my understanding. Thanks
