First you need configure incoming email service. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/selvagan/archive/2008/01/26/incoming-email-configuration-moss.aspx http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262947.aspx

Second you want to Create a folder structure for incoming email, you can create Event Handle or workflow to do this when the email be created in list.

Hope this helps

This seems like a pretty complicated task (it looks easy if you already have the prerequisites configured). Essentially you have to enable and configure the SMTP Service in CA, enable sites to receive emails, activate the feature on the site collection/site level and then enable the individual list settings. There are a few more things you can do with it and this video (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/Video/ff679958) has a lot of good information about setting it all up.

Let me know if that works out for you!
