How do I Prevent Junk Mail in Outlook Express?

Question

I recently switched from aol to cable. I am currently using Outlook Express to manage email. In aol, I could place my cursor on the sender and subject line of suspected junk mail, click delete, and never open the email. However, with Outlook Express, when I place the cursor on the sender/subject, the email automatically opens! I don't want to open this junk in my system! How can I delete incoming messages without actually opening them?
