Outlook - filter potential spam etc

Like most, I've been inundated with spam recently. "Adding to Blocked senders list" doesn't help - I must have hundreds of these, and imagine they only serve to slow the system down.

Can I configure Outlook so that an eMail is posted to my Inbox ONLY if my Inbox already contains mail from that sender? And divert all other mail to another folder that I can peruse at leisure.

That way I could at least know anything in my Inbox was welcome.

Thanks

Philip

Not what you want but.click here It will let delete mail, or read mail before it gets to your mail box,

Should have added I think it will take up to 6 or 8 different e-mail address's.May only be my imagination but I am sure that I am recieving less junk mail than normal since I started using it.
