Hi Alessandro, This is from the RFC for IMAP4 ( ) IMAP4rev1 includes operations for creating, deleting, and renaming mailboxes; checking for new messages; permanently removing messages; setting and clearing flags; [RFC-822] and [MIME-IMB] parsing;searching; and selective fetching of message attributes, texts, and portions thereof. I think MOVE should be COPY followed by REMOVE. However, looking at the current IMAP handler, COPY ( as in copying a message from one mailbox to another ) is not supported. -- Graham Chiu
