move mails to imap folders

Asked by Ingo W on 2013-09-15

Hi there,
I set up vm8.2.0b together with emacs 24.2. I want to sort incoming mails to particular folders, when some criteria are met. And I want to leave all my mails on an imap-server. So I set
 (setq vm-imap-account-alist
           '(
             ("imap-ssl:imap-server.xxx.xxx:993:inbox:login:<email address hidden>:*" "work")
            )
     )

I used to have something like when I spooled mails from an imap-server
(setq vm-auto-folder-alist
      '(
        ("To:" ("<email address hidden>" . "~/Mail/folders/GMT"))
        )
      )

Is there a way to get something similar done on an imap-server? What is your way do sort incoming mails on an imap-server?
Any advice would be very much appreciated
TIA
ingo

Since the IMAP servers are entirely independent of VM, there is no way to sort mail using VM. The IMAP server might provide ways to sorting mail. I don't know.

But what I do with VM is to define virtual folders for different classes of mail, and visit those virtual folders. The manual describes how to set up virtual folders.

Can you help with this problem?
