Hi.  I have a email account that collect mail from multiple mailboxes.  I would like to learn how to write a scrip that will create a folder in the public folder base on the to field and place all the mail to that user in it.  Is this possible?  Doesn't anyone already have a script for the job or a similar script that I can download?  Thanks in advance.

This email receives messages for over 14000 email accounts.  You can't expect me to create a rule for each one.  That is why I wanted a script to move them and also a script to create a folder under their name to store it in.  Thanks for trying.
