There is one critical missing feature in message filters - working with "Received" headers. Most of the time, a message has multiple of these headers. However, it only filters on the **first** received header found, instead of filtering on all of them. This makes it very difficult to sort messages based on which server/e-mail address it was sent to. (the To: field is a lot of the time incorrect, especially for spam)
