I found this script on this site:

tell application "Mail"
    selected messages of message viewer 1
    move result to mailbox "[Gmail]/All Mail" of account "Gmail"
end tell

Is there a way to take the account of the selected message as an input? I have three different accounts and don't want three different scripts…
