Thanks for this update. I tested it with the newest version of uBlock
Origin. It works reliably with my RSS feeds. However, I noticed that if
I allow remote content in mails, no network requests are filtered by uBO.

Is this the intended behavior? Or more precisely: uBO uses the
webRequest API. Does this mean that that API is not used for mails but
only in "browser-like contexts" like RSS feeds?

I'm asking this as in older Thunderbird versions uBO (the legacy
version) was able to filter network requests in mails. A clarification
would be great before contacting gorhill.
