Perhaps, yes.

So Matthew, the ball is in your camp now :-)!

No problem, I understand. It surprised me quite a bit too as I found
this one. I didn't expect the problem to be in that area of the code.

The bug report leading to this one was also vague :), our bug tester was
telling us that it's not right that he could move a message while the
client was offline. He expected the UI to block his action in stead.

So we defended that this is actually supported and that the message
should be stored remotely as soon as the client goes online.

We tested this to be sure of our claim, and we saw that the message was
not visible for other E-mail clients ... oeps
