Is there a way to setup a junk email rule that filters email subjects that have characters from another language?

If a person receives an email that has characters from another language, is there a way to filter these types of emails with a rule that sends it to junk email?

I am using Office 2007.

You can configure junk mail options to block character sets - go to tools, options, junk mail options button, last tab to select the character sets you don't want downloaded.

Otherwise, you need to make a rule that looks for specific characters and move them to junk or deleted folder.
