I'm guessing that you're using IMAP and you've set Mail V to Browse (and
not Download). That scheme works a little different than POP's concept of
login and download. Filters also might not apply when browsing.

I'm sure the various folders are related to the IMAP server directories and
how Mail V handles messages that are stored in specific IMAP directories.
Probably unrelated to the server's actual date and time.

I'm not very experienced with IMAP and Mail V. I did try it with
(whimper) and it looks like a very powerful capability. But with power
comes greater complexity.

Because of how I use my Newtons and my other email tools (My Yahoo!, my
WinMo phone) it made more sense to login and download as needed, then

You might want to try switching from Browse mode to Download mode and see
if this improves your experience. As I recall, you can still use IMAP, but
it will sort of mimic a POP connection (only faster). Filters should work
as well.
