I'm not sure exactly how much this helps you, but Mail::Audit takes its input on STDIN, and the two usual ways for remote clients to talk to mail servers, IMAP and POP3, are represented in CPAN. It shouldn't be difficult to write a Perl script to grab your mail and run it through whatever you please... the difficulty, to my mind, would be getting your mailreader to play nicely with Mail::Audit, which AFAIK only writes to various Unixy formats of mailbox.

Update: You should be able to download a copy of each message via IMAP, filter it through Mail::Audit and/or friends, and based on the results keep it, move it around, or delete it, also via IMAP (or more specifically, via Mail::IMAPClient).
