Outlook 2013 - moving emails from search results to folders

tango_it used Ask the Experts™

I just found this issue with Outlook 2013 and I don't know if it is my computer or it's just another ingenious feature by Microsoft

I am doing a search in the Inbox, the results are shown accordingly
Select one or multiple emails from the search results - unable to drag them to another folder, unable to use right click - move, nothing happens, no error and no emails are moved.

So how can I move the emails found using search to another folder?

Can you try this? Do a search for particular messages in your inbox. Select a few you want to move, drag/drop them into a desired folder (they will NOT disappear from the search view).

Next, click the little 'x' to the right of your search term(s), and see if said messages actually disappear from the inbox.

I just tested this on my Outlook 2013. I thought I had the same issue at first, but realized the message was actually moved.
