How do you completly block and email from outlook express?

I can block them by going to message and then block sender, but if they want to send an email to me it goes to the deleated account which i dont want it to. I would rather it bounded back to them.

this is so i dont get my deleted box full of junk

Do NOT bounce any spam back as the senders do not own the servers etc. You can block messages but the addresses tend to change daily and you will spend more time setting up rules than just deleting them. A decent spam filter such as Inboxer will save you loads of hassle.

Or use a freeware program like MailWasher, ePrompter or POP Peeper to delete unwanted/dodgy messages directly off the server without having to download them first. All will also allow you to preview/read messages before you decide to give them the chop.

For MailWasher - click here

For ePrompter - click here

For POP Peeper - click here

I've given you 3 options as some prefer one over the others.
