Default Using BIS pushing with multiple folders in Outlook

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all. I use a Blackberry Bold, and am trying to get my work email pushed to my phone via BIS (I tried Desktop Redirector but it has stopped functioning for me with the Pending to Device bug that's apparently somewhat common).

Anyway, my work has a number of mailing lists that I'm on, almost thirty in all spread across different projects. Rather than have them all go to my inbox, I have them routed to separate folders using Outlook filters. The problem I'm having is that Desktop Redirector and Desktop Manager allowed me to choose specific folders that I could have pushed to the Blackberry, whereas BIS only seems to let me get messages that are dropped right into my inbox to be forwarded. I can try to add filters for things like "Any message that has TO:MailingListName" to be forwarded as well, but the BIS page pretty explicitly states that this doesn't work, with this message:

* Filters using '"To" field contains' and '"Cc" field contains' do not apply to Microsoft® Exchange™/Outlook™ Web Access (OWA). If you set the '"To" field contains' or '"Cc" field contains' for these email account types, you will receive messages on your device when any new mail arrives in your Inbox.

Does anyone know any solutions to this? I know that I could always disable my filters if I leave on a business trip or something, such that all of my emails go to my inbox, but that'd be a bit of a deluge and I'd like a bit more control over it. Is there any other software I should try, like emoze?

I think you're stuck without BES. Emoze doesn't seem to support BB's from what I can tell (nor does it seem to detail its folder support).
