I use offlineimap to sync my 'online' boxes, but for mail the needs 
filtering, I send that all to one mailbox on the server (via sieve), and 
then fetch the mail from that box with getmail.  Getmail hands off to 
Dovecot LDA running locally on my computer.  So I end up with one set of 
folder that are synced by IMAP (offlineimap) and another set of folders 
that exists only on my laptop, populated by getmail/sieve.  I'm not sure 
if you could do it another way...

You might want to look into imapfilter if you want to filter stuff in 
the background but don't have the capability to do that on the server
