Mac Mail -- Can't move mail to folders

I'm running Mail 3.5 on Mac OS X 10.5.5 on a Mac Pro.

I have an IMAP account for my business.

My problem (which recently developed) is that when I try to move individual messages from my inbox to a folder on my local machine (a) the mail won't "stay" in my local folder and (b) the mail reappears in my inbox.

The result is that I can neither keep my inbox clean, nor archive messages by client in folders on my hard drive.

I created the folders on my hard drive when I was running a POP account -- I switched to IMAP when I got my iPhone last summer. But this problem started long after that.

Any suggestions?

Thank you

I'm on IMAP too and have been experiencing this problem for few weeks now. I have limited space (as we all do) and not being able to move messages from the server to my local HD is a problem. Did anyone find a solution?
