I'm confused by this.  Do you mean that you can only have one spam folder
and one unsure folder, and all filtered folders go there?  If so, then
that's by design (it makes things a million times simpler).  The only way
can think of to get around this is to have another copy of Outlook running
somewhere, that handles the second set of filtering tasks.  (Or writing a
whole new script or making lots and lots of changes to the plug-in to handle
separate destinations).

If that is what you mean, then none of the rest of this applies.  If it's
not, then maybe it does <wink>.

What happens if you try to do this now?  You should be able to select any
(mail) folder for filtering or as an unsure/spam destination.  If you don't
have the appropriate permissions for the folders you might have troubles -
the log files will have details.
