Entourage 2008 - Exchange Account Email going to two separate Inboxes

I have Entourage 2008 client configured and working with a users Exchange e-mail account.  The user is able to Send/Receive mail, open Shared Calendars, Accept Invitations, etc.  However, there is one remaining problem.  In the Entourage Folder List window, there is the Exchange account Folder, and then there is another folder called "Folder on My Computer".  The user is receiving some e-mail messages in the Exchange account mailbox, but others in the inbox under "Folder On My Computer".  I am assuming that "Folder on My Computer" is the equivalent of "Personal Folders" in MS Outlook.  I need to stop all mail from going to "Folder On My Computer".  Any idea how to acheive this?  I need all the users mail to arrive in the Exchange Account inbox.    Here are some more details on the Exchange Config:

User is setup  in Active Directory as:  username@mydomain.com
We have added a second e-mail address for the user in the e-mail addresses tab: username@mydomain2.com

The mydomain2.com e-mail address is marked as the primary address.    Now here is the weird thing.

If I send an email to the user at username@mydomain.com, it arrives in the Exchange mailbox in Entourage.  However, if I send an e-mail to the user at username@mydomain2.com (the primary e-mail address), the message arrives in the "Folder on My Computer" inbox in Entourage.  

This appears to be just the opposite of what I would expect.  I would think the e-mail message sent to the
Primary e-mail address would arrive in the Exchange Accunt inbox in Entourage, but it is just the opposite.    The problem appear to be specific to Entourage.  Anybody experienced this and have a fix?  Is there a setting in Entourage I need to change to get all mail to go to the Exchange Inbox?  Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Does he have any client rules defined?

No.  Just checked and there are no rules configured in Entourage.
Still not exactly what what I'm looking for.  I' don't want to move e-mail messages TO the "Folder On My Computer".  I want all e-mail to get delivered to the inbox under the Exchange account.  It should all be going there to begin with since all incoming mail is getting pulled down from the Exchange server.  There are not additional accounts configured in Entourage, just the Exchange account.
