save-message is bound to s, and it marks messages as deleted.
To tag the messages to move, type ; s, and you'll see
Save tagged to mailbox ('?' for list): =mboxname
where mboxname is determined by mutt based on the tagged messages.
Edit this if necessary, press return, and mutt appends the tagged
messages to =mboxname (or the folder specified by you) and deletes
them in the current folder.
Both = and + are shortcuts to your ``$folder'' directory. Unset,
it normally defaults to ~/Mail (elm style).
