Windows 7: Windows Live Mail - Keyword Spam Filtering

Windows Live Mail - Keyword Spam Filtering

Edit: Nevermind, i found it. It's under tools > message rules. Sorry guys.

I remember in outlook express i could define keywords for removing spam.
I could set a preference like, if an email has "rolex" or "viagra" in it's subject line to be moved or deleted. I can't find that in Windows Live Mail, anyone know where it is or if it exists?

It looks like the Junk email options were moved from the Tools menu to the Actions menu in WLM (2009). But if you want to specify the specific words in the subject line yourself, I believe only the usual Message Rules can/could do that.
