    When I press the backspace key to delete messages I get this message in a dialog box:

    The message “Ipsum Subject line” could not be moved to the mailbox “(null)”
    The destination mailbox “(null)” does not allow messages to be moved to it.
    [OK]

    I think it started happening after a force quit of Mail.app.

    Is there a way to repair the settings or the database so that I can delete messages with backspace again?

    If I move the messages to the trash "on my mac" it works, but if I move it to the "master" Trash can I get the same message.

    Same issue

    Did you ever find a solution as I am experiencing exactly the same problem.
