Author/Date MoveThing does not move mail

It seems that MoveThing() is not moving mail to a different folder. I've got a filter with print statements on either side of a MoveThing() call and the console indicates that both print statements are executed but the mail doesn't move. I've got numerous scripts using MoveThing and none of them are working.

It's probably got to do with the arguments you are supplying. I recently changed the code that implements the scripting method to accept either a pointer to a folder object OR a string path to a folder. However if you have an old version it's probably expecting just a pointer to the folder.

In any case it's worth emailing me your code so I can see what you're trying to do and maybe help resolve the problem.

So just to clarify the syntax:
MoveThing(DestFolder, SourceObject);
Where DestFolder is either a Folder object OR a string containing a valid path to a folder.
And SourceObject is a pointer to an email or other 'Thing' object (calendar event, contact, group, filter etc).

FYI I just added some more logging inside that method that will spit out error messages to the console. At least that should help in the future.
