Hm. Evolution should have a way of automatically applying filters.
Saying "I want Evo to do them automatically" is a different thing from
"I want filters to happen before the mail even gets as far as
Evolution". If you want the first, then I'd look at Evo itself; if the
second, procmail. Or there's a tool in Debian called imapfilter (truth
in advertising!) which promises to do this for you...
