I have set up a message rule to only except mail from those people in my
address book and send spam to a spam folder which is working very well
especially for one particular email address of mine, however I would sooner
not get it at all and was wondering would it be better to set the rule to
not download the spam from the server or delete at the server.

Thankyou.

Better to *delete* at server.

The only problem with that is if you forget to add someone you want email
from to your address book. Then all emails from them get deleted without
giving you a chance to see them.

I personally prefer redirecting them to my Deleted Items folder and just
taking a quick glance through for emails I want that may have been filtered
out.

If you're using a Hotmail account, then anything in your Trash Can/Deleted
Items folder doesn't count towards your 2 meg storage limit. You just have
to remember to glance through them before it gets emptied.

I use a third-party program to filter mail at the server. I also
protect my address, so that I get virtually *zero* spam.
I was replying to the OP's question as phrased.

Try Mail Washer
But don't use the bounce feature...

Or change email application to something like Pegasus Mail which has the
feature in its filering rules
