    Applying 'Junk Mail' status to multiple items in Inbox

    I like the Junk mail options in Vista Mail, however, it is tedious to right
    click on EVERY message in my InBox and set 'Dont trust sender/domain'

    Is it possible to hilight a number of messages and apply this action just
    once?

    I've been dreaming for such a convenience but you have to raise the
    developers IQ by at least 20 points for them to figure out how important it
    is for all users.

    The best you can do is to block a domain for each email hoping that the next
    piece of c**p will be sent from the same domain name.

    No, that is not possible.
    If you are depending on this mechanism to fight off typical spam,
    you are fighting a losing battle. Spammers routinely change their
    fake return addresses.

    I am a bit confused on the terminology. How do I mark a message as "Junk
    Mail?" Do I have to use the alternative terminology of "Don't trust
    sender/domain" or is there a direct way to mark it as "Junk" using that
    terminology and letting the filter make its own decision about whether
    sender, domain or content should be used as a filter criteria?

    Highlight a message, click on the Junk button on the toolbar
