Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051025 Firefox/1.5
Build Identifier: Thunderbird 1.5 (Windows/20051030)

I wanted to make a message filter rule that uses one of my custom-added headers ('Sender') and one of my address books (the one I use as a white list of senders for spam-filtering purposes).

When I choose my customized Sender header in the field in the first column of the Filter Rules dialogue Thunderbird does not give me the option to use 'is/isn't in my address book' in the operator (second) column.

Please address.

I'm not sure if this is feasible without recognizing Sender (or Reply-To, 
Return-From, etc) as a standard, address-containing field; there are many "custom" headers that typically don't contain an address (Content-Type, 
Content-Transfer-Encoding, any number of X-Virus- or X-Spam-type headers), and it might be confusing to have those headers providing the same option.

BTW, "is/isn't in my address book" isn't even implemented for To or CC -- that's bug 187768.
Summary: Should be able to use customized headers with white lists → Want "is/isn't in address book" option for custom headers

Shouldn;t this be a relatively easy fix? To allow that as a filter/search option? Its been here for 6 years now?
