See the manual:

"You will find the filtering preferences via the "Configuration"
menu, "Filtering" item."


"There is also a quick method of creating filtering rules based on
the selected message. After selecting a mail of the type you want to
filter, choose "Create filter rule..." from the "Tools" menu"

See the manual:

"Processing rules are the same as Filtering rules, except that they
are applied when entering a folder or when manually applied from a
folder's context menu and apply only to this folder."

It isn't worth a nickel to two guys like you or me,
