Thunderbird version 0.8

It is not possible to define a filter rule that moves all incoming mails from a
POP mail accounts into a seperated local folders ("FROM ACCOUNT"-sensitive)

E.g.
You have 5 POP accounts, a global inbox, no account inboxes and you want to move
mails from POP account #1 into local folder #1, POP account #2 into local folder
#2 and so on.
It is only possible to define rules that are e.g. "TO" or "CC" sensitive but not
"FROM ACCOUNT"-sensitive.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new mail accounts
2. Use global inbox
3. Define filter rule (missing rule)

Actual Results:  
Mails are delivered to local folders if filter rule "TO", "CC", ... sensitive
fits mail header.

Expected Results:  
New filter should be integrated that provides a "FROM ACCOUNT"-sensitive rule.

You can use 'Sender'. See bug 40934 for more info.

I have the German version of TB 0.8 (20040913).
I do not have these 2 "Sender"-items. In my language it is called "Absender"
(=FROM) and "An" (=TO). I fully understand the differences.

But as someone said before in the comments of bug #40934 , it's not possible to
handle this case if you are within a mailing list. Nowhere in the header you
will find your email adress. So a new built-in filter rule has to be developed
that allowes to define "FROM POP-ACCOUNT XYZ".

If I misunderstand something, please tell me about a workaround. Using the
"Absender"-item instead of the "An"-item does not help...

Thank you!

This would be particularly nice given that new accounts now default to Global
Inbox...
