How do I move multiple tagged e-mails from one folder to another folder?

Post by ANTan » Fri, 03 Feb 2006 00:01:21


I tagged multiple e-mails in index/list mode with "t" key. I couldn't find a way to move these
tagged e-mails from one folder to another. I tried "s" to save, but that only saved ONE e-mail
which is a pain if I have many e-mails to move.

I looked at help (?) and Google (Web and newsgroups) and didn't see anything about moving. Did I
miss it or is it something special trick? I am using Mutt 1.4.1i (2003-03-19) on my friend's old
Fedora server (alpha system). Thank you in advance. :)

That didn't work. I went to help mode (?) in Mutt, then do a search:

Help for index -- (33%)
Search: U s i n g . T a g s

hit enter key and got "Not found." error. :(

Oops. Try to search for Using.Tags in <f1> (Mutt manual).

Check the manual for full details (probably in /usr/share/doc/mutt), but you
either need to prefix the command with ; (which tells mutt to apply it to
all tagged messages), or have

set auto_tag

in ~/.muttrc (to tell mutt always to operated on all tagged messages).

You have to use ";s" in order that it works. The ; is the sign that you
want
the command to be applied to all tagged messages.
