Deleting Unwanted Emails in Microsoft Outlook. Offered as Advice.

This is more of a comment in case anyone in the community wants to know.
I was having a problem from continually getting emails that offered no new information but simply contained boilerplate telling me that my message had been received. When I sent another message saying do not bother me any more, I got another boilerplate confirmation.
I created a Rule in Microsoft Outlook 2010 (example: Move messages from someone like [email protected] to the junk folder and then delete it). That has always worked before in similar situations, but the emails kept coming through to my Inbox. Then I realized that the default in outlook was set to run the rule on messages IN the junk folder, but the message was coming into the Inbox. As soon as I changed it to run on messages from the sender in the Inbox, voila! no more annoying messages. I don't know how I could have missed such a simple thing.
