I'd like to make a rule such that if an email is moved or copied into Folder1 (where Folder1 is not the Inbox) the action is triggered. For example, if I move an email into Folder1 I might want it to be copied to Folder2.

You need to disable the option to stop processing rules - this way you can create a rule that when an email arrives in Folder1 (because it is moved) it is copied to Folder2.

When I create the rule how do I specify the Folder1 part? Not clear to me how I specify that criteria. – Matt Apr 5 '11 at 15:06
@Matt: Oh, there seems no option to trigger on a folder, you could temporarily tag them with categories instead. Or you could do something like this? – Tom Wijsman Apr 5 '11 at 15:14
