Eudora, both Mac and Windows, I consider a good mail client.  Cross 
platform is a requirement for me.  It's weakness is complex 
filtering.  If either one can filter on List-ID, I'd like to know how.

But that's beside the point, because we can't always control what 
clients our users use.  To say that filtering on to/from is 
"incorrect" is a bit over the top, IMHO.
