Add forwarding to the inbox filter actions. I.e. be able to automatically forward messages to an email address according to filter rules
Yes. I have various shared accounts (banking, credit cards etc.) with my spouse for which email notifications really should go to both of us, but the business/institution only allows one email to be listed. Currently, I have to manually forward all of these to her, which is a nuisance and undermines the utility of the service.
I understand that the encryption of my PM Inbox on the server creates obstacles to server-side auto-forwarding. And based on that, I assume that the existing types of filters (e.g., move to folder, apply a label, etc.) are all done on the client side (mobile app or web browser), which has access to the unencrypted message. Why couldn't the forwarding also be done client-side?

I would love this for a different reason. I have a Visionary account and was going to add a small division (four users) of a small company I work at.
It turns out that the division often sends out e-mails larger than 25 megabytes. The largest e-mail I've seen here was 100 megabytes! and the current e-mail provider supports up to 200 megabytes per e-mail!!! I can't imagine sending an e-mail that large.
Anyway, they have an extra account that is shared and that each must log into to access the shared e-mail. It would be far simpler to have a filter that automagically forwards e-mails to a particular address to each of the people in the company something like a mailing list.
This is of special importance to me in that I'm getting old (currently 68) and all the e-mails regarding domain registrations and e-mail comes to me. If something happens to me, I don't know that they would ever log in to see new notices. It would be far better to have the e-mail come in and then be copied over to each of the others.
One alternative, I guess, would be if I could buy a 25 year subscription so that the account would remain active for 25 years. This wouldn't be likely to work with the domain registrars because they now (at least Network Solutions, anyway) because they will send out a notice to check your information and if you don't respond in time to tell them that the information is correct, they put the domain on hold and redirect all of the DNS queries to their own server that says that the domain has been suspended. This caused us serious problems last fall when they suspended a domain of ours that had some users on it who must legally perform certain actions within a couple of days after the notice is sent out, whether or not they receive the notification. That became a serious issue of public safety within hours on the first day they suspended the domain and continued for the several days to get the domain unsuspended.

Yes, even to another PM account... It's a pain not to have this functionality (with a paid account). For instance, the insurances mails for me and my partner go to one address only and one has to forward manually each one of them.
