How do I run an Outlook 2007 rule on mail only if it is older than 7 days? I don't want to "specify a date span" everytime. The rule simply moves the mail into a subfolder.

You cannot do that.
Rules can be run;
a) When a message arrives.
b) When a message is sent.

I think I am being a bit silly. I should just disable the rule and run it once a week.

I was hoping for an automated solution but manually processing the rule once per week is not too difficult a task.
