Outlook Express Message Rules

I am using MAPI to send a message from vb.  My problem is that the users have "message rules" set up in outlook express to move the email to a user defined folder in outlook express and they don't seem to work when sent from my vb app. A rule such as this: "where the to line contants 'address name' move to folder 'xxxxx'". The email will only show up in the "sent items" folder and not follow the rule to move it to a specified folder.  Hope someone can help with this.

Thanks

The rules will only apply for messages sent from Outlook.  Since you are sending messages outside that app you will have to move the message to that folder yourself.
