Folder does not open when I want to drop a message

In earlier versions I noticed and got to like the KMail behavior that I could drag a message from my inbox to a folder; if there were subfolders in this folder, the top folder opened to show the subfolders, and so on also with the subfolders.

I cannot recreate this behavior with my current KMail and have been looking without success through .kde4/share/config/kmailrc for some keyword which looks somewhat related to this activity. How can I make KMail open folders again when the mouse pointer with a dragged message hovers over them?

I found other options in the kmailrc file which I could modify to quickly change the global behavior for all folders instead of having to edit the properties for each folder individually. This is where I really like the Linux configuration file concept and my vi editor.
