'Rules' in Outlook Express

Can someone tell me if I am able to set a rule in Outlook Express to delete all emails from server unless email address = 'a' or 'b'?

I know you can do it in MS Outlook, but I can't see how to do it in OE - I'm using xp BTW.

I want to stop all the random crap from being received at random variations of my email address, but don't want to just delete all *Spam*, because some of the emails I receive are being marked as spam, even though they are not.

hmm, I've just looked and I don't think you can do the "unless" bit like you can in Outlook proper. have you considered using something like Mailwasher to filter out all the junk before it hits your inbox?

Do you know if isp servers can be setup to allow this type of rule?

I'm fairly sure you can't do that in OE - however you can do that (and much more besides) using Office Outlook.

Yeah, I might have to install it.

I can't be doing with downloading 200 emails everyday.

I am using Outlook 2007 - and so far I have been impressed. the spam filter is very good. I have it on a high setting, so it occasionally treats genuine messages as spam ... and a few spam messages slip through ... but by and large it means that I can focus on genuine messages.
