That's nice, but I don't see why I should have to go through an action on
the mails manually when that can be done automatically by Claws.

And the second problem I see is that I have Processing rules which are
acting on the date of the email, and dispatching them to Archives folder. 
These mails with their "unknown" date are automatically processed and
dispatched to these Archives. Using a manual Actions would force me to go
through all the possible destination folder, apply the Action, and then
move the mails back to the correct location...

What's the problem with extending Claws ability to recognize new date
formats ?
