Not automatically delete mail in Lotus Notes

After being spammed by "out of office" messages, I wanted to add a Lotus Notes (LN) rule to move these types of messages from my Inbox into the Trash folder. However, LN doesn't provide an action that moves messages to the Trash folder. Instead, the action that sort-of fits my requirement is to "Delete (don't accept message)" which I think means that LN will just delete these messages, sight unseen. I prefer to review my mail before permanently deleting them so my workaround is to create an action to "Move to Junk" then review the Junk folder before deleting messages.
