Exchange 2007 Transport Rules

I have Exchange 2007 SP1 and want to set up a transport rule.  I know you can set a rule that checks incoming email and then moves the email or deletes it etc.  What I want to do is move the mail to a particular folder in the users mailbox and I need to do this through the exchange transport rules without using the Rules Wizard in Outlook.  I know it can be done through Outlook but that is not an option in this case.  There are a couple of actions that allow you to copy or redirect the message to "addresses" but I can't work out how to redirect to a folder within that users mailbox.  Can it be done by enabling a transport rule in he exchange management console?  Thanks...

I thought a rule that addressed individual mailboxes required the rules be run at the client end..

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Is this for one user or all staff?
Would the message come from the same source or use the same subject or content like a word in the message?

Look at a third-party utility called SpamMover for Exchange 2007

Also, if the rule is create in OWA, the rule would run without the user logged in.
Providing more info as to the need for this may be helpful, was well as if this is for all users or just one.

The reason why I cannot do the redirection in Outlook is because it is a shared mailbox for many users, therefore I would have to create an Outlook rule in multiple user profiles.  I have created a folder in the shared mailbox but I cannot find an action in the exchange transport rules to redirect to that folder?

now there is a use for virtual machines, run outlook so rules can be ran...
we have a OWA lite, maybe its time for a Outlook Lite..

BTW, Transport rules are done in powershell or Exchange Console I thought..

I know that transport rules are done through the exchange management console, that's what I am trying to do, but as I said I cannot find an option to redirect to a folder!  You can redirect to another user or mailbox but I need to redirect to a specific folder?

I've just gone through all the options, and I'm afraid that part cannot be done with transport rules.
