Can Exchange 2007 move spam to a custom folder that shows up under every users mailbox

Using Exchange 2007 HUB role only. We get our mail scanned by 3rd party and marked as *SPAM*. We would like to move these messages (not using content filter since they reject or delete) to a custom folder created (automatically) under each users mailbox (Outlook 2003) called 'possible spam' or so. Is this possible? If so then how would one go about doing it? I have read that it needs to be a managed folder and also that it is done through OWA, but how. Any help greatly appreciated. 500 points for solution. Pretty please. Thanks!

Do the messages marked *SPAM* still deliver to each users inbox?

Yes... and all I want to do is to have Exchange create a folder under the users Inbox and then send them there per user. Thanks. :-)

You could setup a transport rule where whenever a message comes in with the subject *SPAM* to set the Spam Confidence Level (SCL) to the same as the SCLJunkThreshold in the organiztionconfig, therefore automatically junking it.

To get your SCLJunkThreshold open the Exchange Management Shell and type: get-organizationconfig

Nice... but how do I (sorry, but I am not that great EX2007 yet) order it to make a new folder under each user profile to drop it in there?
