Is there a way to set a rule to work when I run it and on a folder other than inbox?

tell me I am too compulsive, but is this possible?

I get emails in my inbox on outlook.  I delete them, they go into the deleted folder.  I don't empty the deleted folder contents so it's large.  Is there a way to have a rule that runs against the deleted folder box all the time or on my command that moves things from deleted to another folder?  That way I don't have to drag things from inbox to a certain folder all the time, I can just use the delete key.  

Or move things from the inbox AFTER they are read into certain folders based on the sender, etc.

Try this. Create a folder called _Reviewed under your inbox. Then use this macro

Sub move2folder()
On Error Resume Next

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set objFolderSrc = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
Set objFolderDst = objFolderSrc.Folders("_Reviewed")

Set colItems = objFolderSrc.Items
Set colFilteredItems = colItems.Restrict("[UnRead] = False")

For Each objMessage In colFilteredItems
objMessage.move objFolderDst
Next

End Sub

thanks.  I want to keep it simple.  Can't do it in rules / integrated into outlook from what I've been reading.  Thanks for the script though!
