BES monitors a given set of folders for redirection and with 4.0 code that default is Inbox and Sent. In order for redirection to occur BES must see the message arrive in the set of folders that its monitoring. With server-side exchange rules, the message never arrives in the inbox, its immediately moved to the destination folder. If BES is not monitoring the destination folder, the message is not redirected. The quirk is that if BES is monitoring that destination folder the message is not flagged as filed on the handheld when its redirected. I'm not certain of why this is, perhaps this will change in a subsequent release. When you execute a move from the Inbox in the Outlook client BES receives a notice from Exchange that the move has occurred and makes the necessary changes to the message on the handheld.
There aren't any filing rules available on BES, only redirect/don't redirect and alert.
