But this is not a general solution, sorry. Only works for "From",  etc. What about a search on the Body contains? Would this work? Don't think so.

 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
 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
 X-Mailer: YahooMailClassic/280

Correct! I post to sylpheed's ML using Yahoo! Use sylpheed for other IMAP-enabled e-mail. What is wrong with that?
