NIS 2011 - Auto delete spam

HI all, at present when i recieve spam in Live Mail 2011 norton correctly tags my spam with a warning and leaves them in my Inbox. Is it possible to set norton to automatically delete these messages instead as so far its been 100% correct?

Hi caracortada_uk,

You can either create a new Norton AntiSpam folder or use the existing Junk folder and then create a message rule in Live Mail to move messages with the [Norton AntiSpam] tag to that folder.  You can then periodically check the folder for mistagged legitimate messages before deleting the folder contents.

I don't think it's an option even in WLM itself .... like many other shortcomings.

I just created the rule to move Norton AntiSpam labeled messages to Junk and then as said, I check before deleting. I also check via webmail for the Junk mail held back by my ISP since I often spot non-Junk there, usually routine messages that I asked for but are sent by robots to large numbers of people ....

I would not want automatic deletion.
