Netscape, at least, does have some basic filtering capabilities which
work with IMAP. I use Netscape for work email (where the PHBs are
all-too-fond of HTML), and Netscape's filtering is barely adequate for
my needs there. It can only filter on certain predefined headers,
unfortunately, which makes it inadequate for most mailing lists. But
it does work, after a fashion.
Check under the `Edit' menu in the `Mail and Newsgroups' window or the
`Message Center' window, and you should see `Message Filters'.
It'll never replace procmail for serious filtering, but it may be
sufficient for your needs.
