KMail has pretty good filtering -- the only thing here I see it missing is 
that you can't use both AND and OR (just X and Y and Z or X or Y or Z) -- but 
you could use multiple rules to get around this if you had to.  You can use 
regular expressions, and leverage your address book and its categories and 
things like that.

Good luck finding something you like!
