I think the clever way is to filter during delivery, not when a client
opens the mailbox. Client-side filtering is a POP holdover. The concept
of IMAP was to avoid dependency on using one client on one PC, so as to
avoid the kind of problem you described. But maybe you have no choice.
This is off topic for an alpine list, so I will stop.
