When I join a mailing list, I want to set up a filter for the mailing list using
the least amount of trouble.  For that reason, I like to use the right-click ->
Create Filter From Message... option in the header.

Many mailing lists require a comfirmation, and then they send back a nice little
welcome message to describe how to work with the mail manager.  The From/CC
addresses are not the same as the mailing list address, however the real mailing
list address is usually in the body of the welcome message.

I would like to right-click on the email address and select the "Create Filter
From Message..." option right away, but it is not available.  Also, that option
should read "Create Filter From Address..."  (Note Address, not Message) as that
is what is happening anyway.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on an email address in the email header
2. Right click on an email address in the email body
3. Note the differences.

Actual Results:  
Right-Click menu for address in the email header:

* Add to Address Book...
* Compose Mail To
* Copy Email Address
* Create Filter From Message...

Right-Click Menu for addresses in the email body:

* Select All
* Print Preview
* Copy Link Location
* Copy Email Address

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have all the options from the email addresses in the header also
available in the body of the email message.
