    Windows Live Mail (Desktop) "Move To" problem

    In the windows live mail program, the following is observed:

    a) create a new folder "Send To" under the Hotmail (i.e., the root folder)
    b) select messages under the folder "Sent items" (e.g., where the copy of
    new message will be saved automatically after each "Send")
    c) select the "Move To" command from the command bar
    d) select the new folder "Send To" when prompt
    e) selected messages appear to be moved (i.e., the message headers can be
    seen under the folder "Send To"
    f) Exit the program and re-login Windows Live Mail again
    h) the messages that have been moved is no longer in the "Send To" mover,
    and remain in the original "Sent items" folder
    i) If in step (e), the moved messages are opened (i.e., double click the
    message headers while they are appeared in the "Send To" folder, the messages
    will remain in the "Send To" folder the next time when log-in

    Just wonder if it happens to anyone else?

    Try copying a message to the Send To folder, do not delete the copied message from the Send To folder, then test if
    later/subsequent messages using the 'Move To' command remain in the 'Send To' folder.

    This is the behaviour I would expect to see if the accounts were not
    allowed to synchronize before closing down. Depending on the number
    of messages involved, they might not all synchronize in one go,
    either. (At least, that used to be a problem. Perhaps someone can
    tell us whether *all* messages in HTTP account folders are
    synchronized at once nowadays.) Another problem that used to occur
    was that folders created on an HTTP account in WLMail did not
    function as well as those created at the Hotmail web interface. It
    would be nice to have confirmed that this one has gone away as well.

    So, after moving messages around your Hotmail folders, do a
    Send/Receive on that account before closing down and check whether
    the changes have all taken place. If they haven't, Send/Receive
    again until they have.

    The "Copy To" command is fine, i.e., the selected message get copy to the
    "Send To" folder and remain there as expected after "Exit" and Log-in again.
