For the record, Thunderbird seems to be incapable of matching any
headers besides the ones that have been predefined in spite of claiming
to be able to do so.  I cannot match the mailing list without the
Subject, From, or To for a search filter (it works for a manual search
or a filter at the time of delivery, so this makes no sense), which
makes the feature largely useless.  Perhaps if this issue does not get
resolved in Thunderbird 2.0, I will seek another mailer.
