From the peanut gallery, my first suspicion would be that you've somehow
specified the directory to move it to incorrectly.
It would be helpful to post the macro here, or if it is long, at least the
parts relevant to moving that email to the directory you specified.
To answer your question, yes, a macro could be written (at least in some
languages -- I don't use Claws mail so not sure about that) that could delete
the email, although I would suspect it would end up in a trash folder in which
you could find it.
