Yes, set it up under Tools, Message Filters. Filter with sender, title, receiver, account, etc.

If set up properly it is automatic. You can manually run the filter after you set it up to see if it works. To test it, you could get an old email from the sender, put it in your Inbox, then manually run the filter to see if it puts it where you want it to. When a new email arrives, it will do it automatically.

thanks all i figures it out it is automatic if the enable button is pressed, if is next to the filter name in the main window. if not then you have to click the tools run mail filters.
