If for example you transfer a mail to a particular folder--or if you
transfer 100 mails to a particular folder-- and then realize you made a
mistake, then is there a command to "undo" the transfer so that the
mails come back to where you had them?  

IMHO a general undo would be fairly difficult to implement, however the
more restricted case of "undelete" would still be immensely useful and
doesn't sound hard to do. I know you can hunt for the deleted message
and undelete it, but this can be hard to do when you have Hide Deleted
Messages turned on, together with Group By Threads for example.

Would "undelete" include a facility for "un-transfer" in general? Or
does "un-transfer" come under the category of a "general undo"?

How would we go about getting this implemented? I think it would be a
big help.

Also, I can't help asking the question that did the programmers think it
would be better not to put in a general undo, or was it an oversight?
Because e-mail software has had this feature since the mid 1990's.
