Moving Emails To Folders

    Alas, this doesn't work when you have Search Results displayed. I would like to select all the emails from SENDER and move them to a different folder. I can copy them, but not move them. This is for a corporate/enterprise gmail account

    I agree with Scott, the feature to "Move to" after a "Search" is a basic feature of any  email program not to mention a "Pro" version.

    It appears that emails cannot be moved between accounts, or am I missing something?

    I'm able to do this easily in Apple Mail, and I've been trying to find a mail program for my Windows computer with the same features.  Thunderbird allows moving emails between accounts but I'm unhappy with the clunky search features.

    Mailbird shows search results nicely, but if I'm unable to move emails between my accounts it's a non-starter.

    How to move a single message instead of entire conversation?

    Search is a bad design and filtering????

    Not happy with the lack of sort features or message rules and filters. Great program, however without these functions, useless for my purposes. After reading through a number of other customers with the same complaints, going two years back, Mailbird has no plans to add these features. Going to try Postbox, sounds like it has all the features I need. Too bad I bought the "pro lifetime" version!

    @Charlene: I have been using Postbox for several years. It has much more advanced features than Mailbird, but at the same time it has some terrible bugs there. Technical support tends to be very poor in both cases. There is simply no good mail software on the market :-(.

    Dear Mailbird, 


    I have to admin that indeed moving emails from one mail account to another is still not possible. 

    I hope you are going to fix this problem.

    Yeah, it would be great if there was a feature that could allow to transfer mails automaticly from a specific sender/object keyword to a folder.

    That would be helpful for people like me working on multiple projects at the same time.

    Hello ! I bought the Business version of Mailbird, and it's impossible to move email between my account and my Gmail. I'm disappointed because even Thunderbird can do that :(

    Do you have a solution ?

    Remarkable that Mailbird cannot move & archive email between/across accounts - in my case: Gmail (personal) and Exchange (work). This wouldn't seem that unusual nor difficult because so many other clients can do exactly this.

    As per other comments, makes Mailbird a non-starter. FYI, have been using EM Client as a good alternative for now.
