In Sylpheed, I click on the "From" at the top of the email list pane. I
then left-click on the first entry for amazon.com. I then go to the last
entry for amazon.com, press the shift key and left click on the last
entry. This highlights all of the amazon.com emails. I now left click on
the highlighted emails and hold while dragging to the folder in the
folder pane to which I want to move the emails. Once there, I release the
the left click and the emails are moved.
