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?
