    Moving multiple emails to the same folder

    I would like to move multiple emails to a folder but unlike Yahoo and GMail I
    do not see a box to check the emails off. Is it possible to move multiple
    emails to the same folder at the same time or do I need to move each email
    individually?

    You can move any highlighted messages. Ctrl + left click.

    Thanks Ron but can I move 5 emails at the same time. Ctrl + left click will
    only let me move the emails individually and not all at once correct?

    The standard way to select multiple objects in Windows is do one or more
    of the following:
    - Use menu item Edit, Select All (or Ctrl-A) to select all objects
    - Left click the first object in a range, then hold the Shift key while
    left clicking the last object in a range to select the entire range
    - Hold the Ctrl key while left clicking an object to add or remove it
    from the selected items (this is a select toggle)

    Are you comparing the Yahoo and Gmail web interface options with Windows Live Mail or Windows Live Hotmail ?

    I said messages, not message.
    Using Ctrl lets the first message stay highlighted.
    Highlight one message, Shift + Home or Shift + End. This is handy if you
    sort and select a message in the middle of the list.
