It is much easier to file e-mail in Eudora than in Thunderbird because Eudora includes a dynamic "Transfer" menu in the main menu bar that lists all the folders you can transfer into. Furthermore Eudora allows you to create new folders from directly within that menu, in various subfolders. I'm not sure I can eluicdate all the reasons that workers better than Thunderbirds sidebar but here are two:

1. The font is much larger in the menu.
2. The main pane or front message window doesn't lose focus when I sue the menu. It does when I'm trying to move messages into folders using Thunderbird's sidebar.

Eudora has a sidebar too, but I always hide it because I don't need it. The menu is so much easier to use.

I'm not sure "Transfer" is the ideal name for this menu, but a menu with these properties would be a major improvement. 

Reproducible: Always

Related to Penelope bug 382412?
Adding dependency, but it's probably not a "real" dependency, just easily ported from one to the other product.
