on my email providers server I want to filter all various newsletters to be moved to a folder named "Newsletter", to only have personal emails in the Inbox. This works fine so far when I set up appropriate filters on the providers server.
In a second step in Thunderbird I want to filter these newsletters according there origin to be moved from this "Newsletter" folder to separate local folders in Thunderbird.
How can I do this?

You will have to set up filters to do that and those filers will have to be manually run. Thunderbird's automatic filters will only act on messages being newly received to the Ibox folder itself.
