Yes, you can set up mail filters on the Gmail server, so obviously 
you'll see your messages filtered regardless of what client you use. 
Just go to with your browser and set up your filters there.

Also, you might want to use a less generic subject line and ask fewer 
questions in each message. This will probably give your questions a 
better chance to be noticed and answered.
