To add to the list:
1. More support for writable LDAP addressbooks. Evolution is the only client I know of that supports it, although setting it up was a little odd, even for someone experienced with LDAP. It's also missing features that would make it a useful business-feature. (See http://nakedape.cc/wiki/WritableLdapAddressBookIdeas for my thoughts.)
2. Support for client SSL/TLS certificates. I know Evo 1.4.6 doesn't have this and suspect Thunderbird does.
3. Ability to manage Sieve scripts. Sieve is a server-side mail filtering language currently in the early RFC stages; implemented only in Cyrus IMAP AFAIK. Sieve scripts are uploaded through a TFTP-like interface. Some webmail clients have plug-ins for managing the filters, but I know of no GUI client that does.
4. Ability to include multiple messages in a reply. It makes the logic for threading ambiguous, but can be very useful at times. I'm sure some mailers support it, but I know Evo doesn't.
Oh, did this just turn into my Evolution wish list? Sorry...
