Can I move files rather than copy them using Send To feature in Sharepoint 2007

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to set up the Send To feature in Sharepoint 2007 to move files rather than just copy them between document libraries? Ideally I would also like to leave an anchor link in the original library, but even if I could get the move working that would be great.

this option uses machine login not sharepoint login, so make sure you give atleast CONTRIBUTE rights to machine login if you want to do cut paste.

Thanks for the reply. I had been moving documents in this way, but to roll out to users, I was hoping to just use the Send To from the dropdown on the actual document. This only seems to copy the document. If the explorer view is the only way to go then I will have to go that way.
