Outlook has a built in junk mail filter, in 2003 this certainly performs very well when set to "High".

As for this specific email, you could just make a rule that says "If sender address is xxx, permanently delete".

As long as they're from the same address, or use a keyword like 'microtoss' just create a rule to automatically delete them.

Alternatively, use an antivirus client which is capable of integrating into Outlook and have it flag and purge virulent emails itself.

Use "delete from server", that way you dont waste time downloading.

Or see this Anti-Spam Thread that I had the other week. It had a good response as to two different ways of filtering spam.

And the Mailwasher thing mentioned, there is a free version at www.mailwasher.net that only does one email address.

It works for me.
