I'm sharing my mailbox with other people. By using aliasses it is possible to
get the mail to the right person. We are using different pc's.
In Thunderbird I have made a filter which will put the mail for a person in the
in-box, all other mail will go to the trash-box.
On the mailserver all the mail has the status read.

What I'm looking for is the following:
All the mail(body/header) what is for a person will be downloaded and put in the
in-box. Mail what is not for a person will not go into the trash-box.
On the mailserver only the mail what is downloaded has the status read.

I have tried almost every mail-client and all the mail-clients has this kind of
behavior, except outlook.

Reproducible: Always

For a POP mail account, which I assume is what you're using: the way to achieve 
this is to set up the account to download headers only; and then create filters 
which specify an action of "download message body" for those particular messages 
you want to see.  In particular, you may want to have:
  If Sender in Address book, Download message body
