My junk mail filter in outlook express uses the message rules. I create a rule where the from line contains people. The rule description then has a link to enter the people. The select people dialog has a button for Address Book. I select everyone in the address book. The option in the select dialog allow you to change to Does NOT contain. Then I either delete the message or move it to a folder to delete.

Result: Email from anyone not in your address is filtered.

Notice that your address is a hotmail account. Hotmail has a fairly effective junk mail filter but you have to set it up on the hotmail site. Additionally, hotmail accounts in OE sync with the hotmail server and I would think local filters would not work.

If it is another e-mail account, then above are accurate.
