If you want to move all your emails from your UIowa account and have them be deleted from your UIowa inbox click "Move to.."
  3. Once you move your mouse over either "Copy to.." or "Move to.." you will see a menu giving you options to where you can send the emails. Select your folder of choice and click to move the emails.
