Does anyone know how to set up a mail forwarding rule that will automatically forward any new messages in a set IMAP folder to the target address? The problem is that the messages to be forwarded are initially sorted on the mail server and reside In a IMAP folder however the outlook rules dont seem to have an option to target a specific folder.

This is typically done on the server side using the filter that sorts the messages into the specific IMAP folder in the first place.  I know how to do it for Gmail but have no idea precisely how it would be done elsewhere.
