popfile will do exactly this (classify based on moving the message between IMAP folders), and has a web GUI to use as well.
unfortunantly it has two problems (one major, one minor)
the major one is that it is still single-user (multi-user operation is under development, but stalled as the core developer moved to France)
the minor one is that popfile maintains one IMAP session per folder, this is actually much less resource intensive for the server then opening and closing folders to cycle through them, but it 'looks suspicious' when a sysadmin does a netstat and sees lots of connections from one client. when I get a chance I intend to add a 'max connections' parameter that will limit how many connections are in use at a time.
