Hi Kay,

Do you get this problem only in the email folders?

If yes, please try at first a repair of the PST file with scanpst:

"How to repair Outlook folders using the Inbox Repair Tool"
http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/outlook/repair.html

What is the size of your PST file?

Maybe your PST file reached the limit. Have a look on this workflow for "How
to reduce the size of your PST file?" if the size is the problem.
http://www.onecomputerguy.com/app_info/outlook_maintain.htm

Maybe it helps.

What happens when you try?
Clear your Deleted Items folder and try again.

Before, I would click on an item in my inbox and drag it to a different mail
folder; I can still move a message if I right click and choose to move it -
but dragging and dropping was so much more convenient. I have emptied my
deleted items folder, but I still can't drag & drop.

I did run the "Inbox Repair Tool" and it showed that no files were damaged.

This is just bugging me!!
