To help organize mail in Thunderbird, I would like to have a recipient be a folder that would add a copy to the folder the same way it does to the "Sent" folder.  Is there a macro or special feature that can do this?

I suggest you use the new virtual folder feature.

Open the search function (Ctrl+Shift+F), search for the recipient (select the to: field and add the recipient)
Press the search button.

When the lower listbox is getting filled with the right emails - press the button: Safe as virtual folder

Assign a name and a place where to store this folder and you are done.

Repeat this for every important recipient.

Best advantage of this method, it is kept up to date - you don't wast additional storage for duplicating the emails.

RayRider, are you referring to outgoing messages? having certain recipients go to a special folder other then Sent folder?  Tolomir has given you the best option.  As far as I know you still can't create a Message Filter for outgoing emails, so just do as Tolomir suggests but make sure you select the Sent folder or the folder you may have set up under Tools->Account Settings->Your account->Copies and Folders.

For more info in Message Filters, see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Message_Filters

Yes this is a great feature, you can configure the filter e.g. to bundle all incoming and outgoing email to / from joe smith that are <50kb and contain attachments...
