1. DRAG & DROP: when I drag an e-mail message from folder A to folder
B, the message still appears in A. Is there any way to make it behave
as a move, rather than as a copy?
IMAP has no "move" operation, so moves are done via "copy and delete".
You can hide deleted message if you don't want to see them. View->Hide
Deleted Messages. However they'll still be there till you do File->Empty
Trash or Folder->Expunge (Ctrl-E).
But the message in A appears without a strike-through. It is still fully present in both places. The
automatic delete behavior is not working. I have to manually delete the message from folder A. The same
behavior occurs when I drag a subfolder - the subfolder and its contents are in both the source and
I've never seen that. I presume that deleting a message does show it
with a strike-through, right? What if you Right-click and select "Move
to Folder"? (I'm wondering if there's some peculiarity due to this being
a Windows version of Evo).
