Outlook rule does not move mail from the inbox to a public folder

I have configured a rule within outlook to move any message that is received in the Inbox to automatically move it to a public folder. The rule gives an error whcih states it can not move it to the folder. Using Exchange 2010 and Office 2010.
I renamed the OST file, but no joy. Move moves fine as long as it with in a folder in the inbox.

Any suggestions?

That would work however, we are required to sign all messages using a Common Access Card (CAC).  In order to send an email a  password is required and this email is not monitored 24x7.
Hmm. another possibility might be to look at Exchange Transport Rules. Perhaps you could set a criteria that any email sent to you, matching a specific criteria of course (e.g. subject line), has a copy sent to the Public Folder. You would still need to mail enable the public folder. The end result is one copy would go to you and one to the Public Folder automatically.
