This method works fine indeed.
There is, however, another method that does involve search.
Under the list obtained as the result of a search, there is a button
named 'Save to search folder'. Pressing it creates a new folder
containing the messages from the search list, which you can then move
or copy to any other folder.

Globe Trotter did not use Sylpheed. This is in his/her headers:
X-Mailer: YahooMailClassic/280 YahooMailWebService/
