Can Exchange 2007 move a particular message to a particular folder within a user's mailbox? It seems like it should have this capability, but I'm struggling to figure-out how!

My SMTP gateway (not an Exchange Edge server) scans for spam. I mark messages with an X-header, then pass them on to Exchange. I want to make Exchange detect messages that contain the X-header and then move them into the user/mailbox's Junk E-Mail folder. Of course I'd prefer to do this in
server-centric style, rather than relying on Outlook rules.

I can make a Hub Transport rule detect the message, and take action as a
result -- but not action to 'move message to Junk E-Mail' :(

Any ideas?
