Moving Folders in Sharepoint 2007

I have an email enabled document list, which receives emails with attachments from external users. Everything works fine i.e. whenever the email is received, the list createds a folder with the attachment and email message (group by subject).
My question is how can I move folders in SharePoint doc list to another doc list. I know its easily possible with the documents itself (right click>> send to>>) but I dont see that option at the folder level. My goal is to move the complete folder after it has been acted upon to another doc list in that same site. The reason I need to groupo everything by folders in that an email can contain multiple docs.

Cannot seem to find any info. Thanks.

In the document library, go to Actions, then Explorer View. Right click the folder and cut. In another IE window, go to the new doc library and do the same, but paste the folder.

Good luck,

:-)

Robbie , thanx..but I am looking for an option without changing the view..I have setup a custom destination on the site , I want users to send those folders to that destination by right clicking (the same way the can do at the doc level)..

Have you considered using the "connect to Outlook" functionality? This should allow a simple drag-and-drop approach to moving the folders. I know of no other way of doing what you want out-of-the-box.

There really is only the one way as I outlined. Unless you want to get into some heavy coding.
