How can I create a rule in Outlook 2010 to move all emails from an IMAP sent folder to a local sent folder?

So far the closest I've been able to get is to move all emails from the IMAP inbox to the local inbox- but now I want to grab all the emails from the sent folder also.

The trick is NOT to start from the Create Rule... drop down link. Instead choose Manage Rules and Alerts option and click New Rule....

You should then have the option to create a new rule based on Apply rule on messages I send.
