Delayed execution of rules in Outlook

I have a blackberry that is configured to use BIS to get mail from my exchange server. I also use Outlook on my computer to manage the email on this hosted exchange address.

Here is what I want to do.

Since I can only receive emails on my blackberry when they go to my "Inbox" when I create rules in outlook..say to move a message from Jim@aol.com to a subfolder labeled "Jim" it does not show in my blackberry.

Can I create a script or some other thing that would allow my rules to be delayed for a certain length of time which would allow me to get the email on my blackberry and keep my inbox on my desktop organized?

I looked at it, but I believe that will only affect message that are outgoing. I looked for that option on the incoming side with no luck

Hi, cbodin.

No, there is no way to delay the rules.  Rules fire automatically when items are sent or received.  If you want to replace all of your rules with scripts, then I can offer a solution.  Scripts have to run at the client though, so it means leaving your computer on with Outlook open all the time.
