Message filters is one of the things where outlook still is better IMHO. The wizard style filter tool can actually be a time saver. I also like the context menu option to generate a filter rule.

The thunderbird UI is adequate but not more than that. I miss integration with the addressbook for instance. Maybe some shortcuts for some often used types of filters would also be a good idea (e.g. move messages from X to folder Y).
