On the server.

One important thing to keep in mind: By design the IMAP protocol does 
not allow the alteration of messages. Therefore any change requires an 
upload of the altered message and a subsequent deletion of the obsolete 
copy of the message.

If one does already use filters with IMAP then KMail does already 
download and upload all messages, so it makes no difference to 
introduce another filter.
