Using rules to filter messages based on sender's category

Does anyone know how to filter incoming messages based on the category assigned to that contact in Outlook 2007?

For example, I have a category set up called "work", and that category is assigned to some of my contacts. I would like that whenever an email comes in from an address that is part of a contact assigned to the "work" category, the message is moved to another folder.

I initially had multiple contact folders, but when I synchronized my Windows 5.0 Mobile device, it moved all my contacts to a single giant contact folder and assigned them categories. It infomred me that this was the new improved way to handle contacts, but now I cannot figure out how to set up a rule based on this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Outlook cannot do that itself. You would have to write VBA code for
that.
