Automatically move emails after Follow-up flag is set

My goal is to automate moveing received emails into a pre-designated folder after I set the Follow-up Flag (manually).

The New Rules Wizard and the Create Rule dialog box seem not to be setup for this: Is job for VBA?

Can an amateur (i.e. using 1 – 2 lines of code) do this?

Appreciatively,

Hi, Steven.

Yes, this is a job for VBA.  Rules can't do it because they only fire when an item is sent or received.  It's not something that can be done in 1 - 2 lines of code though.  I'm also not sure how well it'll work with Gmail.  Gmail normally uses IMAP which causes folders and items in folders to behave a bit differently.  If you want to give it a shot, then I can post the code and instructions.

Yes, that would be splendid. Seeing it should give me an idea how involved  it may be and whether feel confident enough to adapt or tweak it.
Even though, I'm  in-and-out  of the house this afternoon, I'm very interested in looking at this, so I look forward your reply.
