Question: Can't move Mail to mailbox when Offline in Sierra

I recently upgraded to Sierra on 2 computers and experienced the same behavior on both:

When offline, mail will not allow me to drag received mail into any mailbox, instead I get a message such as "Couldn't load body for LibM{554708:52161:Wh*:2017-08-29 17:04:14 PDT}".

I've quit mail and rebuilt mail folders but this does not change the noted behavior.

Not unlikely I'm missing something but need help.

Out of curiosity: do you have an IMAP account? If so, you should move your emails from the Inbox to whatever other mailbox/folder while still online because the emails in the Inbox are really stored on the server, not your computer (they'll be downloaded again the next time you're online).
