Not sure if you know this, but sqwebmail already has the ability to create

Sure, but I don't think that's a good place for the code. I think a PHP
script would be much more appropriate for general filter creation. I'm
surprised no-one has created one yet.

But, the problem is that you've got to have a way to make sure that the
filters are letting mail through. Either that, or you've got to create
your filters in a way that is foolproof (like, making sure the folder
actually exists before allowing the user to make a filter that drops
mail there. Or, making sure a defunct filter rule is deleted when the
user deletes a folder in their webmail client.)

With that in mind, it makes a lot of sense to put this functionality in
the webmail client. (But note that sqwebmail does NOT currently delete
a filter if it's corresponding folder is deleted.)
