I use fetchmail to dump my imap mail into my local spool via exim.  I then
have it locally available to sort with Sylpheed's filters .

Here's how I do it:

502[mightyd@dld:~]$ cat .bash_profile
if [[ `pgrep fetchmail` == "" ]]; then fetchmail -d 30; fi
. .bashrc

503[mightyd@dld:~]$ cat .fetchmailrc
poll mail.4cls.org with proto IMAP
user 'ddofton'
password '*********'
folders main ipswitch
