The local folder issue is solved. The connection timeout is different.

Today, I have drag-moved 1800 Mails (~200MB) and then 1200 Mails (~80MB) at once from IMAP to IMAP without problems. Watched it in Console, went really smooth.

Only irritating fact: During one try, I wanted to see the mails arriving and clicked the target mailbox before the transfer was complete. The transfer got stuck, the IMAP server timed out and the mailbox was declared invalid. I had to set the account offline, then online again. But I was not able to resume the transfer. The same when I clicked the source mailbox. No distraction when I clicked a local folder.

GNUMail 1.30 (precompiled) on Mac OS X 10.9

I have further cleaned up the fix. I can handle a doze messages at once. I did not try moving, but I did try copying 20-30 messages at a time no issues.

Should be related to the issues of moving messages to local, please re-test.
There is no specific limitation in the number of messages.

is it IMAP to IMAP? IMAP to Local? Local to Local?

When moving more than 10 messages from one directory to another directory using drag-and-drop, GNUMail freezes. GNUMail 1.2.3 on Debian.
