To firstname.lastname@example.org(bug opener): Are you requesting new "move" functionality for "Drag&Drop of mail folder between accounts"? If yes, this bug should be Severity=Enhancement, because Tb currently works as designed. This bug is never Gmail IMAP related, so removing dependency to Bug 402793.
No longer blocks: 402793
Lifers could you answer Wada's question ?
drag drop between accounts always does a copy by default. Shift drag+drop will do a move between accounts.
This works - resolving invalid.
