Default Outlook 2003 - Move E-mail to Folder Using Rules (Dependant on Sender& When Received)

Hi,

I am trying to set up my outlook to automatically file emails from my
inbox to the appropriate folder for a sender but only after the have
been in my inbox for a set period of time.

Setting up a rule for moving the mail from a specific sender is fairly
straight forward and you can select a specific period in time such as:
02/01/08 - 09/01/08 but i cannot find a way to do this when an email
has been in my inbox for longer than a week. Can anyone help?

Regards

Rules work when received or sent
vba / macro might be able to do this

A rule cannot do this.

Thanks for posting. From both of your responses i am sure i am on the
wrong track with utilising rules for this but it has been suggested
that i may be able to use a macro / vba. I have very little
experience with these and that is with excel. Any suggestions on how
i may get started.

Regards
