Yes. I do not think that a "Move" dialog is a GoodThing. It would mean a 
right click, drag-left click move leftclick move leftclick move leftclick 
sequence to replace a rightclick drag leftclick sequence to accomplish the 
same thing.

Selection an option from a 2-level submenu is much less tedious then 
selecting an option from a sinple context menu, operating a dialog control 
that basically functions as the second menu level did, then dismissing the 

I use this "Move" submenu extensively - I should, I wrote it :) - and I 
would miss it very much.
Another thing to think about is that MRU1 != MRU2. Meaning, I don't need 
mailboxes used in some other function to appear on the MRU for "Move".
