Duplicate emails after rules. I hope I can explain what I need. I have several gmail accounts forwarding to Outlook 2007. I have a rule set to forward to a specific incoming folder from Gmail to Outlook and from there to a sub folder. It's forwarding fine but it's leaves a copy in the main folder which clogs up Outlook and I have to delete. I have hundreds of incoming emails. Is there a way to set a rule to delete from the mail incoming folder AFTER it has been forwarded to the sub folder. My current rule is:

Forwards from Gmail to HomeBusiness folder

The rule is as follows:
Apply this rule after the message arrives from (Whomever)
and on this machine only move it to the (whatever) folder

That all works fine. But now there is a copy of the email in the HomeBusiness folder AND in the Whatever folder.

I created a rule to delete it but it's not working:
Apply this rule after the message arrives from (Whomever)
and on this machine move it to the (whatever) folder
and delete it.

This rule is not correct because either.

Any suggestions??? on how to delete the email from the main inbox? but keep it in the subfolder?
