It might be worth considering some useful defaults, I consider email
with my email address in the To field to be more important than emails
to me in the cc or bcc fields. I also consider emails from mailing lists
to not be worth immediate notification.

Although Evolution doesn't have any mailing list handling yet, so I
don't know how feasible it is.

I agree on the Contacts infrastructure, more work on social contacts and
cross data contexts would go a long way to putting Ubuntu above and
beyond any other operating system. (if done right)
