    Hey all,
    Ok, just got the DROID and my biggest complaint right now is with the Mail application (not the Gmail one). I have it set up for IMAP for my home email, and I can not move messages from my inbox into another folder.

    Can you actually do that? If so I haven't been able to figure out how. If you can't, is there a different Mail application for Android that will let you do that?

    It seems like a common enough feature that you would think it would be there.

    Thanks ahead of time,
    CdtDelta

    Couldn't do it either. Am trying "K-9 Mail". Says it has IDLE support for IMAP, and let me choose which folders I want visible. There was also an option for identities, but I have not tried that.

    There's also a beta called Seven and it works pretty well. You can't get it from the market, you'll have to google search for it and download it from the browser.

    i havent used the email app on a home imap server but have you tried pressing and holding on the email to move it to a different folder.

    I think, at least in gmail, you can press the menu button to change to view a different folder.
