I hvae just moved over to Thunderbird. First time. Before, I was using Pegasus
Mail. My Father said to start using Thunderbird, but I wanted to keep all my
mail. So, he told me to take all mail from Pegasus and copy it to this IMAP
folder. So I did. Select All, and copy. It worked... Now, I want to move all
those mail to the local folders I have created. I Select All, move to folder,
and... Nothing happens. I take one mail at the time, and that works. I can't
seem to move everything in one drag or through the move menu.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select all or Ctrl+A
2. Click-drag to Local Sent folder or Right-click, select Move -> Local Folder
-> Sent
Does nothing...
Actual Results:  
It blinks slightly, and then... Nothing...

Expected Results:  
Moved all my mail to the local folder.

you can try a 1.1a2 thunderbird build

and see if this is fixed in the latest build.

OK. That fixed it. Thanks.
Now, something you should probebly know when I installed it.
I downloaded the win32 version, and installed it ontop of the old version (like
I do with Firefox when an update comes about). And when I tried to run it, it
wouldn't run. Well, it would run for a small second, then disappear. So, I
uninstalled the old version, reinstalled the new one, and it works. Just thought
I'd let you know this little detail.
