How can I forward "Outlook Connecter" emails to main Inbox?

I'm currently using POP to deliver emails from my live.co.uk account to my
Outlook 2007 inbox. Unfortunately, since trying to set up my Blackberry to
access the same account, I get duplicate emails delivered to Outlook every 15
minutes. I've been advised to use the Outlook Connector to access the
live.co.uk account. Only problem is that the emails get delivered into a
separate inbox. I'd like to set a rule to move them into my main inbox, but
can't get it to run automatically. It only works if I run the rule manually
and select the "connector" inbox to run the rule on. How can I set the rule
to run automatically for emails delivered to that account?

TIA

Why not forward the messages to your other account by setting up a rule on the
Live server? They they'll forward even when your Outlook is closed. I'm not
sure Outlook will run rules on the Outlook Connector Inbox.

I was worried by the statement on the page that said:

"Note: Forwarded messages are deleted from this account. "

Which, if I understand correctly, means that they won't be visible unless
they are forwarded to another "web-accessible" account?

I hadn't noticed that before and I share you concern. Moreover, the options
page also says that you can forward messages only to another Microsoft-hosted
mail account. Sorry. I guess my suggestion won't work.
