Right, why not having 2 imapfilter configs and run both in one hook?

IMAP1 = old account
IMAP2 = active account
imapfilter1.conf = Shove stuff from IMAP1 to IMAP2
imapfilter2.conf = Sort stuff nicely on IMAP2

Why not just use

[Account IMAP2]
presynchook = imapfilter -c imapfilter1.conf && imapfilter -c

(Or something similar)
