How to move items to specific folders based on the contents of the subject line.

Using Outlook 2000 I'm looking for a VB macro/code that will search the Inbox and Sent Items folders for messages that are three days old or older and have either "job ######" or "job######" (substitute # for numbers 0 thru 9) in the subject field.

Once identified move these messages to a "######" folder in a .pst file. For example if the subject line contains "Job 654321" the message should be moved to folder "654321". IF the folder does not exist create the folder and then move the message.

I want the messages to sit in the inbox first. I will manually activate the macro to run once or twice a week.
