Depending on local settings, Mail.app can copy read messages locally, which is probably what happened here. POP is also fond of downloading read messages off the server. As for your question, select and drag the messages back into a mailbox/folder on the server.

I tried dragging the emails back into a mailbox/folder in hotmail as you suggested but the files can't be coppied between these two programs. It was worth a try.....thanks
