Yes, I use the same setup since about 10 years. Cyrus imap server and
postfix for mail dispatch. My postfix handles spam/virus checking as
well. My complete Filtering is done by sieve on the server. As I use
different clients there is no way around server base filtering.

Kmail has a very good sieve editor but sadly the kerberos authentication
is broken in recent kmail2 versions.
