I vote for that one too (here in France voting is increasingly important!).

Peter, several people complained about the fact that the solution I found 
to let user specify the destination mailbox for a filter. Indeed it was 
first a text entry and I later checked if it was an existing name, but 
then I decided to put all mailboxes names in a check menu to ease (at 
least I thought it would ease the process) the mailbox choice. But it 
turned out that several users have so many mailboxes that the check menu 
is just too long and extend beyond screen so that they can't choose 
certain mailboxes any more.
I have no time now to think about it, so if you ever had time to implement 
it or just send me the places I should look at to implement it the same 
way as what you're planning for the move menu (later when I have time).
