Ah, but it does. ("Cloud" can be yours or theirs, that's not the point.
Don't get sidetracked.)

Centralized filtering, sorting, spam-catching, plonking and tagging for all
MUAs - good ones
or crap ones, is one of the big advantages of centralized imap. Who wants
to put all those
rules into a finicky phone?

And google's capabilities are very good for that even if you NEVER read your
mail at the web browser.

When I looked at it, gmail sorted mail using labels, but not into
different folders. Has this changed, or is there some trick?

It still does that, but for instance when I receive a list email I
have the filter rule remove the inbox label and add a opensuse label.

Then with a IMAP based client I can pull down the opensuse label as a
folder. In fact that always happens. From IMAPs perspective labels
are folders.

The only time it gets confusing is gmail allows a single email to have
multiple labels. It is easy to end up with duplicate emails in your
IMAP client.

I don't know how to resolve that as it has been a few years since I
worked with Thunderbird/Gmail.
