How to move email folders on a mac

How do I move email folders on a mac.  Mine won't move, they either go inside another folder or they bounce back.  I want mine to be in alpha order.  thx

Re: How to move email folders on a mac

i created 3 new folders to test . Seems i have to drag folder down till a blue line with circle shows up .

 

                  0----------------            and the "smart mailboxes" is circled and highlighted 

                if you drag down up down without letting go of click you can see what i mean . When you see the blue line with circle O-------------          let go of folder 

 

                                           easier to do then explain

What version of Mac Mail are you using?  I can drag/drop email folders to any position.  To drag a folder between two others you have to be careful about drop placement and wait til you get the little blue line with a tiny circle on the left end or else you might end up dragging the source folder INSIDE another folder.  I'm using Mail 5.2 on OS X 10.7.3. 

 

EDIT: Ah, I see UFHhd said essentially the same thing.  Well, that's two votes for it working ;-)
