It's pretty frustrating to have parts of threads for mailing list just missing and only seeing the messages in reply to those that have been moved, so now that I've unset move, I was wondering if there were any way to restore those to my regular ~/.mail/foo/ dirs where notmuch can retag them and restore them to visibility for me in the various virtual mailboxes I've set up.  First time writing in to a mailing list, so apologies in advice if I messed up anything.

Maildir is basically just three folders:
	- cur
	- tmp
	- new

You may choose to just copy it manually from one folder to another.

Or just use:
	neomutt -f <maildir>
and use ``save'' (Default binding `s') to move it using Neomutt.

I'm not into vfolders/notmuch, so I don't know, if above approaches might break something.
So please make a backup before attempting anything.
