AFAIK not yet. According to this URL
<http://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:SummerOfCode2006> this capability
is proposed for Google's Summer of Code by Team Thunderbird ;

"Develop a set of js libraries that do common things TB extension
writers often want to do, like iterate over accounts, folders in
accounts, msgs in folders, stream messages, parse messages, etc.
Extension writers could either just use the libraries, or learn from
them as sample code. Other common tasks might include: getting notified
of newly downloaded messages and stream them to parse them, intercepting
outgoing messages to perform custom actions on them, etc. (Some of these
may require extending the core code to enable the functionality

Why not do as another suggested, and have folders for each account, then
simply have the sent message, copied to that specific account's 'sent'
directory ?

Personally, I don't see much need for filtering outbound messages -- It
gets too confusing to have sent with inbound, in the same directory.

Might be why it's not a widespread feature in e-mail clients ...
