I'm in the process of trying to migrate from Outlook and Exchange Server (to 
almost anything else, really) and this is the major day-to-day irritation for 
me.  If you come from that environment, you get used to having large numbers of 
folders with (say) conversations with individual clients in them; saving a reply 
in the same folder as the original message means this works; if you have to move 
every message from "Sent" into the right place, it works much less well.

So, er, "me too".
