Thanks Benny, you are right, I don’t want to *always* go to that 
mailbox. I realise that if this becomes the default behavior, it won’t 
be ideal either. In fact what I would need are 2 separate shortcuts to 
move messages  : one that works as currently, and a second one that 
opens the mailbox used to move my message. Since no other user seems to 
be fascinated by my request, please just forget about it, I guess you 
have more important modifications to implement.

However I will implement your final suggestion to at least improve the 
behavior for my most frequently used mailboxes.
