Sorting mails?



I have used yahoo mail for long time and after a friend suggested I switched to gmail. Now the issue is that I used to have very decent folder setup in my yahoo mail account with there seems to be no such facility in gmail.

How can is sort out my official, personal, hobby emails in different folders in gmail?

Please help.

Why not just stick with Yahoo if you like it? I like the filtering folders and they are easy to use. I am on facebook and like the alerts but don't like them mixed in my regular mail because there are so many. I get set in my ways. When I find something that works and I like it, I rarely switch unless there are a ton of perks for doing it. What reason did your friend give to tell you to switch?
