It does, and this is how I have read the list (and a couple of other,  
larger lists) for several years.

	Move Message to Mailbox rescue

The only issue I've found, then, is that as the mailbox size grows in  
size, Mail.app takes some time to open it. By the time there are a  
few tens of thousands of messages, this delay can be significant. I  
found this annoying, and as it turns out if I create a "smart  
mailbox" which shows only, for example, the most recent two weeks of  
messages in a given large mail folder, the smart folder stays small  
enough to open instantaneously.
