Can your mail client colour (or otherwise mark) messages according to a set of 
rules? Maybe that's an option if you don't want to move them based on source 
to their own folder (and assuming that your mail client can't rewrite the 
subject line to your choosing)?

(I just checked Thunderbird, and to my surprise it doesn't seem to have an 
option to pipe the message through an external process based on rules, which 
surprised me. I'm sure I've seen other mail clients that can do this)
