I sometimes want to move a message from my inbox to a rarely-accessed folder. To
keep the clutter in my window down, I only subscribe to the folders I use often
(I'm using IMAP.) Right now, to save a message to an unsubscribed folder, it's a
tedious process of bringing up the subscription list for my server, clicking the
folder, hitting Subscribe, moving the message, bringing the subscription list up
again, clicking the folder, and hitting Unsubscribe. It would be swell if there
were an option to put an "All Folders" or "Unsubscribed Folders" item at the
bottom of the folders list, which would expand to the complete list of available
folders. That should be available both in the folders pane and in the popup
folder list for the Copy and Move menu items. That could even replace the
Subscribe dialog for folders, if the unsubscribed items in the folder pane had a
"Subscribe" command that would move them up into the main folder list and vice
versa. (You'd still need the dialog for newsgroups, obviously.)

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

Nothing more to add about this, but this feature request shouldn't be
auto-resolved; the feature still doesn't exist and would still be useful.
