Rules- through specified account / to specified folder not working

I am using Windows7 and Outlook 2007 with two separate email accounts. I am
having trouble setting up the email rules to move emails that come in through
my account into my folder. I go to the rules wizard and select "New Rule".
I check the "Start From a Blank Rule", "Check Messages When They Arrive",
"through the specified account" and select my account. I hit next and select
"move to the specified folder" and select my folder in Personal Folders. I
hit "Finish" to exit the wizard and go back to the Rules and Alerts window
but when I close that window or hit "Apply", the rule changes the specified
account to the other email account in my Outlook every time. How do I get the
rule to stick to my account?

The issue might be in the way the accounts got configured or the type of
accounts that you are using.

There is no need to create a rule for this though. In your Account Settings
on the E-mail tab you can directly assign a different delivery location for
your POP3 accounts.

And the *type* of e-mail account is what? POP, HTTP, or Exchange?

Client-side rules (those defined within Outlook) cannot be applied
against HTTP accounts. If you are using HTTP/Deltasynce to give you
IMAP-like access to your Hotmail account's folders, you'll have to
define server-side rules (using the limited functionality of those
rules). Use the webmail interface to your Hotmail account to go into
its options to define filters (aka rules) to organize your e-mails.

See http://www.msoutlook.info/question/332, "Rules support" section.
