John is suggesting filtering on the To: and/or cc: fields (which typically contain seaint's address), not the From: field (containing the sender's
email), which is what you imply in your email.  I dunno if M$ has a way
to handle this in their webmail systems, but nearly any decent mail reader
can do this.  I understand Thuderbird (from mozilla) can read webmail, and
I *know* it has filtering capabilities.

I, like John, have a filter in place the filters on To: and/or cc:
and it screens nearly everything.  The only ones the sneak through
are the ones that come out bcc'd to seaint.
