No, not stupid.  Open the file folder you want to move the messages from. 
Select the header of the first one you want to move by highlighting it. You 
can then select a range of continuous messages by moving your cursor to the 
end message and hold down the shift key and then selecting it. That will 
select the first, last, and all between. Or, if you want to pick and choose 
from the list you can hold down the control key and highlight them 
individually. After they are all selected follow as explained above.

Hope I made myself clear this time.
