Outlook 2003 Junk Email filter problem?

I seem to be having an issue with the Junk Email filter in Outlook 2003. I have 2 email accounts going into the Inbox and use rules to move them to their respective folders. It seems as if Outlook will not recognize the spam as junk email unless the email is sent directly to the inbox. Anyone know how to make Outlook recognize other folders and check those for spam as well? Or better yet...anyone know how to make Outlook run the junk email filter before the incoming email rules are applied? Using the second method is what I expected it to do...but it looks like it's sorting the mail first, then only looking for the spam in the Inbox, which is of course empty already, since the mail was moved to other folders. TIA.
