I've dragged that subfolder up to the old main Sent folder but can't
seem to get the emails back into the main Sent folder. I tried to copy
and past them into it but nothing would paste.

I once tried dragging an IMAP folder (gmail) to another location and had it "disappear" on me.  I finally figured it out by logging into Gmail and seeing much more clearly where the folder went.  It seems that with Evo, it is much safer to move folders by right-clicking and selecting "Move...".  I don't know if that's what happened in your case, but it's worth checking out.  You might've even accidentally clicked and dragged while the mouse was over the folder.
