I second that. But mileage may vary. There are many people out there who
do not even know what automatic filtering is (they don't even use
folders besides the default one).

Another example: I use different identities with different language
settings (this on is English others are German), but thunderbird is not
able to handle different languages for different identities. Obviously
this function is not used that much (I don't even know a add-on for this).
