It seems that there are some confusion.

There are three kinds of search feature exists on Sylpheed.
- Find in current message (Ctrl-F)
- Search messages (Shift-Ctrl-F)
- Quick search (Shift-Ctrl-S) (the search entry above summary view)

Quick search: you can only search by subject and sender,
but you can select and move/copy/delete them.

Search messages: you can search by any search condition,
but you can only open a selected message, or save the result as a search folder.

I recognized that the current Search messages dialog is a bit incovenient.
I will add the feature to enable some operations to the search result of
Search messages dialog in the future.
