With imap where do I setup overall rules for moving e-mail into

ie. Is there a common place I can filter and not have to have rules in
various imap clients?

I have the below working:

fetchmail --> postfix --> Maildir --> Courier Imap
      --> evolution
      --> squirrelmail

Over the last year or so I have created lots of filter rules in evolution
(20 or 30 I guess).  They are still working (I think, I'm remote right

But if I access my e-mail via squirrelmail, all of my new e-mail is
sitting in the INBOX.  Normally I only have a few unfiltered e-mails in
