I'm trying to duplicate AOL mail's behavior whereby any email message that I read is automatically copied to the saved mail location on my computer, so it remains available even when I'm offline. I want to do this in both Outlook and Outlook Express. I've investigated Mail Rules in both programs, and can't find any rule template that resembles this. Also searched in these forums and tried Microsoft's Outlook support site.

...I forgot to mention I'm using Outlook or Outlook Express with an IMAP (America Online) account, not POP3. With POP3, all email is already downloaded to my computer, but with IMAP it stays on the server. I can manually copy individual items to my Saved Mail folder, but I want it to happen automatically, triggered by opening/reading the email item.
