 In Sylpheed, I click on the "From" at the top of the email
 list pane.

Is this pane obtained as a result of a search for e-mails with a given characteristic (done using C-f)? 

 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

I can do this also. Now I want to move all of them to a separate folder.

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.

So, this happens with all the e-mails in the list obtained as a result of the search?
