The property is "saved-msg-name-rule"
it defaults to "default-folder" which is what you are seeing, I have
it set to "by-nick-of-sender-then-sender" which means that if the
email address is in my address book, the message saves to a folder
with the nickname I've assigned, otherwise, it goes to a folder with
named after the part of the email address before the @.
