I work with many, many folders (couple of hundred) in Thunderbird. The Recent list under the move button is a very handy thing when filing messages. However, there is room for improvement.
1. To avoid cluttering the list with folders like Inboxes and folders to which messages are moved by rules, I would like to be able to specify a list of folders to exclude from the Recent list under the move button.
If that is made possible, the list will really contain the recently used folders to which I file messages.
2. It would also be a real enhancement if it could be specified that folders to which messages are moved by rules are excluded.
3. Specifying that base folders like inbox, thrash, junk, draft, etc. are not to be put in the Recent list under the move button would also be a useful enhancement.
4. Another enhancement would be an option to avoid that clicking on a folder puts it in the Recent list. This would quite likely avoid having inboxes and such in the list as well (the previous point). 
5. Furthermore, it would be very useful if the Recent list under the move message button would be updated after every move. Currently when I am filing messages, the list is only updated when I close the standalone message window and then open the first message in a folder again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have message filed by a rule
2. Close the standalone message window if it was open
3. Check the Recent list under the move message button - the folder to which the message was moved by the rule is shown in the list

1. Click once on a folder
2. Check the Recent list under the move message button - the folder on which you clicked is shown in the Recent list under the move message button
--
1. Open the first message in a folder (e.g. inbox)
2. Move the messase to a folder - this will make the standalone window display the next message in the folder
3. Check the Recent list under the move message button the folder to which the message was moved is not shown in the Recent list under the move message button
