I use IMAP for my mail, and I need to frequently move messages from inbox to a 
specific ("saved") folder.  I would like to create a keyboard shortcut for this action.

As far as I am aware, partial solutions already exist in kmail:
- Shortcut "m" gives me a list of folders to which move the selected message.  This is not ideal, because it requires me to choose/check the correct folder each time.

- For local mail, it is possible to create a filter + keyboard shortcut which does exactly the trick.  However, filters cannot be used with IMAP!

- "delete message" -shortcut does what I want, but it moves the messages only to trash folder.

Otherwise, thanks for an excellent mail client!
