Is there a way I can set up my mail to automatically move to a specific inbox folder depending on the source address?

EDIT:

I'm using thunderbird specifically. Mac, Windows, and Linux. from address: "someoneIknow@gmail.com" and I want to move their messages to my inbox folder "someoneIknow".

gear - settings - filters tab - create filter new filter and use the from field and create filter with this search where it applies an inbox label. This is for the web version; are you using a client? – Raystafarian Mar 7 '12 at 15:17
    
unless you want to hear "of course there is a way" describe your enviromnment. What software are you using? What should happen? When? – Florenz Kley Mar 7 '12 at 15:18

@kisplit Made an answer, but that's for the web version, are you looking to filter it via labels in the web? – Raystafarian Mar 7 '12 at 16:43
