Yep, you need to look for message filters. You can specify that new
messages that meet a certain criteria (for instance anything that has
[ubuntu-uk] in the subject or is from a specific sender) is moved into
the folder (or deleted etc).
It works fairly well, I use it for a few e-mails that I get through from
specific mailing lists.
