Relining does not help. Here’s the situation and the sequence of 

I have lots of folders and subfolders; it’s a gmail account but 
through my university and the address is howie at ucr.edu
I had been using Apple Mail, but I much prefer your program. I’m just 
learning as I go.

Sequence of steps: for some reason, a first level folder (with lots of 
subfolders) got moved and I found this first level folder and all it’s 
contents as a subfolder of another folder. So I tried to move the whole 
thing to be where it belongs, as a first level folder. I did it by drag 
and drop and the stuff (all or certainly most of it) did move, but I 
can’t delete what remains as an extensive sub-folder. I can’t 
imagine that this is clear. Anyway, I’m happy to explain further.
