How can I move emails from a folder automatically during a certain time of day, or using a VB script

We have a daily batch of emails that are moved to a public folder on our exchange server. Is there anyway I can set it so that at the end of the day after a certain time, the daily emails be automatically moved to another public folder?  If this can't be done without user intervention, then is there a VB script that will allow me to do this?

There is no tool inside exchange like that which will move the mails automatically to PFs.

Can you supply the names of the folders involved as an example?

They are public folders that are in my favorites. When i right click on the folder, I see this for the location:
\\Public Folders - user@domain.com\Favorites

Could I use the Item.Move function for this?

I would hink it would be like the following for me (only guessing since I dont use Exchange Email Server.


  My domain is: optusnet.com.au
  My username is: craisin

So the item move would work (I think) for:
    \\Public Folders - craisin@optusnet.com.au\Favourites

That is provided the security within Exchange Email Server allows it.

Just a suggestion.
