Remove email from inbox, outlook 2007

I am running Outlook 2007 on a Windows 7 computer with a locally hosted exchange.  On the older Windows XP machine that I had, I would edit, delete & archive common email files each night by Right+Clicking a group of emails from my INBOX and drag them to a directory on the server for easy retrieval in the future. I could Right+Click and select MOVE and as I dragged the file over, it would disappear from my inbox (the desirable result).  Now, it leaves the copy in my inbox and moves a COPY over to the destination.

In short, is there any way that when I click and drag an email to a non-outlook folder it removes the email from my inbox?

Yes, the default is now move rather than copy, so instead of right click drag use a standard left click drag.

Thank you for the quick response, but whether I use a left or right click drag, the email remains in outlook.

Ah, sorry, I misread, thought you were moving within outlook, not outlook to Windows Explorer. Got me stumped... you may have to 2 step it now copy then delete....

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Hi mate,

How about holding the "shift" button on your keyboard while you drag & drop.

Thanks for the reply but the "shift" didn't work either. I'll just go with the two step method.
