Many email clients contain such a function under the heading "filters", 
to give you special handling for any number of parameters; applied to 
subject lines it can remove threads, and applied to sender names it can 
remove all traffic from users who have already demonstrated they're not 
worth listening to. This function is referred to a "killfile" by 
internet tradition.

Had to use it occasionally on AMSAT lists myself.

It's available in Thunderbird, and most other common email software.
