Trigger a script when mail items are placed into a mail folder

The user is currently moving emails manually (as a manual process) into a mail folder.

We need Outlook to automatically run a script when the emails are placed into that folder.  I saw some posts on .itemadd but need some sample code that will detect when the user moves the emails and then run a script on all emails in that folder.

The script (which we have ready) sends a template reply to all emails in that folder.

We would also like the email to then be moved to a different folder (for archive) once the script is ran per email.

Any ideas on how to set this up?
