Gmail recently added imap.  You might try an account there to see if 
their filtering/folders work the way you like.  I'm still using pop with 
fetchmail to pull the mail to an imap server that I control so I haven't 
really worked with this myself yet but I'll switch to direct imap if it 
works well.  You can always forward your other account(s) there.
