A Faster Way to Redirect Email with Outlook Rules

Sometimes it seems like managing my Outlook inbox is my main job, and everything else I do is a distant second priority. After all, I get hundreds of emails a day, both from people I need to respond to and from mailing lists and newsgroups I'm subscribed to. I'd never be able to function without Outlook's rules, which automatically redirect messages to various folders for later action.
