lotus notes agent to move incoming mail to folder (based on part of subject)

i would like to have an agent that moves an incoming mail to a folder,
but only mails that contain a certain text in the mail body.
other mails will stay in the inbox or will be ove to another folder based on another text.

eg. when the subject contains the text '52.9 ritverzamellijst', the incoming mail should be moved to the same folder '52.9 ritverzamellijst'.
i tried with the attached code, but apparently there's something wrong with the routines that find the text in the body, because the mail stays in the inbox and is not moved.

any expert can fix this code ?
Sub Initialize

	Dim s As New NotesSession

	Dim doc As NotesDocument

	Dim it  As NotesItem

	Dim SPAM As String

	myident = "52.9 ritverzamellijst" ' make this your identifier 

	Set doc = s.documentcontext

	

	Print "Processing " & doc.subject(0) " from " & doc.From(0)

	Set it = doc.GetFirstItem("Body")

	If it Is Nothing Then

		Print "Exiting"

	Else

		Dim stringMyIdent

		stringMyIdent = it.Text

		If Instr( stringMyIdent, myident ) > 0 Then

			Call doc.PutInFolder("52.9 ritverzamellijst", False )

			Print "--> moving to folder  ---"

			Call doc.RemoveFromFolder( "($Inbox)" )

			Print "--> removing from inbox ---"

		Else

			Print "--> does not contain 52.9 ritverzamellijst ---"

		End If

	End If

End Sub

Would it not be simpler to use a mail rule?  As this feature is already built into the mail template
