 Yes, you can actually move the emails matching the search
 criteria to a
 new folder. Once you have a listing of emails to be moved,
 type Ctrl-A to
 select all of them, click somewhere on the highlighted list,
 and drag to
 your new folder in the folder pane.


OK, this works? Here is exactly what I am doing:

use ctrl-shift-f to open the search window
type some search criterion
get a listing
click on one and then ctrl-a (all are selected)
clicking on them in any way deselects

however, if i click on two or more items (not as part of the search) but part of the e-mail list then I can select and act upon just fine.
