Trying to save your message (File > Save As...) will prompt me to save
the message with filename
which actually is the message subject. Not sure what happens when
trying to save messages from a longer discussion (other than Sylpheed
mailing list), where the subject becomes the same after the first
"Re: ..."; pperhaps the system will append (1) (2) etc. ? I didn't
tried on my Windows (Vista).

Do you mean bulk saving or what else ?

Probably this might be a good idea for implementation (feature
request) but I don't think that it can be implemented right in the final
save dialog, where whatever string should be parsed already (just a
guess here).
