I don't access my gmail that way... although I suppose I could.  I
configure every account as a POP server and download all my emails to a
local file on my machine.

If you read my initial post, you would note that I have about 25 email
folders that all my mail gets sorted into.  All the unsorted email, ie
general stuff, ends up in Inbox.  There is no "cesspool" in my system.
I find the filters in Evolution work very well.  That is why I use it.
