i ask this for obvious reasons: there's a lot of spam coming through. we can already make smart mailboxes that scoop up certain ones and put them into a specified folder, but what about an option to enter in someone's email address, and automatically delete the incoming mail from that account??

NOTE: i am talking about a WEBMAIL, not a third party client like thunderbird or outlook express. thanks

is this silly talk? can you give specifics as to why / why not this can work? does such an email service already exist?

Please Do Tell :)

That would probably depend on the company hosting the web mail. I just checked Gmail and it allows you to set up a filter to delete all incoming mail from a specific sender e-mail address.

In OE you can also block senders. It goes into the delete folder and you can check the list to see if there is anything put threre by error.
You can do this by opening OE> messages>block sender and enter the information
