There is no standard/defined "important" IMAP flag/keyword.
Thunderbird is most likely using the X-Priority pseudo-standard header
in the message itself (which makes sense: it is the sender's intention
of the message's importance which should be displayed, not the
receiver's. Objections to this reasoning by some is likely the reason
the header has never been standardized).
