You can access GMail just like any other POP or IMAP e-mail server.
Start here or do a Google search for "Thunderbird Gmail":
You can retain the filters in Thunderbird after fetching the e-mail from
Gmail or use the Gmail labels and filters to organize the e-mail into
virtual folders for using the Gmail web interface.
Take a deep breathe and do some reading... :-)
