This version adds a quickMove button on the left hand side of the Tab area.
Once mails are dropped to this, a search-panel is opened allowing the users to

Hitting the [ESC] key will hide the search box (but won't clear the quickMove
3. Click on the destination folder (or choose with cursor keys and hit Enter)
==> mail will be moved to it.
