I'd add one more:

3) Remove advanced options in favour of scriptability. E.g., "expire all 
emails in 45 days from this folder, except unread emails (which should 
expire in 90 days) and important emails (which should never expire). And, 
oh, please expire spam in 7 days".

Ok, that's an extreme and non-existant case. But there has been a wishlist 
on bugs.kde.org about not expiring Important emails. That's one example 
of feature that should be present in the form of scripting.
