If you unintentionally move an email into the wrong folder
If you unintentionally move an email into the wrong folder, there should be an undo button to undo last move

Yes. Please provide an ANSWER. Cntrl Z does not work in this situation!
Wake up and try your suggestions before posting!!!
Yes, true, I know Control Z "normally" works.
However in this scenario/application it does NOT do anything at all.
Please provide alternative solution.
This ability already exists. You can customize your Quick Access toolbar to include the Undo button which usually (though not 100% of the time) works to undo moving an email to a folder accidentally.
Ctrl Z does work, as long as you do not click into any other folder once you have unintentionally moved the email.
How do you find deleted file

CTRL-Z works for an email that you have just moved. However, there is only one undo action. If you subsequently move a second email you can't CTRL-Z undo twice to get the first email put back. This also doesn't work if you happen to accidentally drag and drop a folder onto another folder. I have a ton of folders and this has happened on more than one occasion. I wasn't being clumsy - my mouse had an issue with the wireless connection and dropped the folder mid drag. Alternatively, I was trying to drag an email. The connection dropped and was regained and in the process the mouse picked up a folder instead! If MS instigated a 20 action undo it would be very welcome.

Yes please. A number of times I've accidentally dragged something somewhere, e.g. I'm drinking my coffee and spill a bit and accidentally mouse click/drag, and I know that an email has disappeared, but then have to waste time looking for the one email in all my folders - needle in a haystack especially if you're not exactly sure which email your mouse pointer was resting on before the accidental drag... and Ctrl-Z won't work for this situation...
Control Z does not work!
The undo option doesn't work after moving a mail to 'other'. Scenario: right click email from 'Focused', choose ' move to other', press ctrl+z or 'undo' button. Email won't move back to 'Focused'.
This is by design according to MSFT, if you want to change this design, vote for it :)

just use Ctrl-Z
Michael Siddall commented
Control Z will achieve this.
This can already be done. CTRL-Z or Undo. I use it all the time as I apparently cannot drag and drop...
