 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.

RESPONSE: Thanks, Hiroyuki! I think this is what I am looking for, the ability to perform some operations (eg move to a folder) to the results of a search. A similar functionality has been available for a long while on claws-mail so it may help to look at that source code?

Many thanks again!
