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?
