A fonctionality that many people would like to see in future version of
mozilla-mail (TB), seen on many forum like
( (french)
The ability to apply a filter like "all emails with mailer-daemon: error" in
subject on all of the separates accounts (like,, etc)
without creating each rule for each account (really boring if you have a lots of
i think of adding "local folder" in accounts list in filters creation box, like
this, if you make a right clic on local folders, just select "apply filters" and
job done !! or automatic all X min local folders'filters are applyed...

this fonction is, i think the biggest fonction that makes old oe users to go
back... me i wait for a patch instead... and pray mozilla-coders (who have done
a really great job !!!)

when you receive a mail, just right clic on it, select "create filter from this
mail or add to filter" and creating filter will be such an easy thing to do...

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. just creates a lots of accounts, 
2. send mails to dead adress
3. and you will see the interest of "One filter for a group of accounts"

Actual Results:  
a big mess in all thes accounts

Expected Results:  
a most optimized fonction ? yes, just apply filter to local folders, or accounts
in a defined list.

sorry for my english...
and thanks for mozilla, it's the best gift you can make for students like me :)
