We often get asked to transfer folders of email between users (i.e. on role change).
This is similar to the linked idea for calendars, but for email messages.
I have written an agent that copies entire folders from one users mailfile to another users mailfile. Having this functionality native would be useful.
In its basic terms - it is copying/moving folders and their documents between databases

As a role with all security measures being honored, that seems like a good idea.

Don't want all users in a DB to dump documents to another DB. That would have several negative connotations--especially with default forms in the other DB, LAN traffic, view and FTI indexing and end-users claiming that "oops, I didn't mean to dump 2k documents from my mail file into the company sales forecasting DB, can you help me?" ...maybe an Admin level feature only.

fair point. At the moment I do this as an administrative function anyway simply to copy from one mailfile to another

I've always thought it better to grant access to documents where they are, rather than move them around.

Peter - how would you do that effectively with a folder in a mailfile?
