This is best directed at one of the KDE mailling lists, but from the FAQ
posted at http://docs.kde.org/en/3.2/kdepim/kmail/faq.html
Why are my filters not applied to incoming messages of IMAP accounts?
Because KMail currently does not support this. You should use server-side
filtering (ask your admin for how to install filters on the server and in
which format), since IMAP is all about managing your email on the server.
Unfortunately, although there exists a mail filter language (Sieve, defined
in RFC3028), there is no standardized access protocol for installing or
editing server-side Sieve scripts. If such a protocol becomes available in
the future, KMail will most probably include support for it.
There is a kio slave to upload Sieve scripts to the server, but you still have
to have access to enable the script. I think the kmail in kde 3.3 will have
additional support for server side filters.
