Create a new rule. Under the rules wizard, say that you want to move messages from someone to a folder, then hit next. On the next step, you want to check the box that says, "from people or public group" and then you want to go to Step 2 and select the underlined option, "from people or public group." In the address box that appears, add the email address that you send emails from, and select ok. Then the next part of the rule, "move it to the ____ folder" should be changed so that it points to the sent items folder.
After that, if you keep going through the wizard you will get to the final page where it asks "Run this rule now on messages already in "Inbox." Make sure that is checked, and then hit Finish.
EDIT: Those instructions are just what I did right now using Outlook 2007. It may be that they've moved some things around in 2010, or changed the exact phrasing. Go to the full post
