With Mailmate, I just leave messages in the Inbox and instead of moving have smart mailboxes to show those selected messages. For what you describe as Inbox, I have a smart mailbox called incoming. Same end effect with no physical movements and actually more control.

E.g., sometimes I access my mail using Mail on an iOS device, or even webmail. Virtual mailboxes are of course only useful within MailMate.

Also, some IMAP mail hosts have limits on how many messages may be in INBOX, so having the ability to accurately and efficiently file messages becomes important.
