No. Apple mail has nothing to do with Horde's webmail client. They  
both access the same email server, but since you are filtering client  
side (within Horde), you need to open Horde/IMP to trigger the  
filtering. This is one, of many, reasons why spam filtering should be  
done server-side by the MTA and not on the client side. You should  
discuss this with your provider.
