Easy Mozilla Thunderbird Filter Creation

Mozilla Thunderbird: When I place a message into a folder I want to simply right click the message and select "Place all future/past messages from this sender into this folder". How could I achieve such simple filtration?

Select the message
Go to Message -> Create Filter From Message
This will pop up the filter window with a rule pre-defined (matching the email address of the sender)
Near the bottom, select the folder you want these to go in.

Not exactly one-click-and-you're-done but it works.

Oh and by default this would just do future messages. If you want past ones also, go to
Tools -> Run Filters on Folder
and it'll apply all of your existing rules to the current folder, including the one you just made.
