Good news! We're currently rolling out drag and drop for messages and conversations into groups in Outlook on the web first for First Release customers, then Standard release customers.
It's much easier to explain with a GIF:
Support for Outlook 2016 for Windows is coming soon--stay tuned.

@HE-MJ ....same - no luck for me either - and even after the recent patched version from 2 days ago too. This is getting ridiculous. I just wish MS would sort this out...

Hmmm so the strange thing is I got this working on my Surface Pro 4, but it's still not working on my Desktop PC. Same version numbers.

Hmm, something is a bit weird. I've got a test VM that's built in the same way as my main client. They are on semi-annual release so won't get this feature for a while.
But I've just switched the test VM to monthly and let it update so I get version 2003 (build 12624.20466) - so slightly newer than your version.
With the admin account, I'm unable to drag and drop. So I logged in as my normal user account. First problem was that the "Groups" functionality was totally missed and I had to create a new Outlook profile. But in this new profile, I am able to drag and drop into a group. I get this warning:
Once you have moved an item, it appears in the recent list in the Move drop down:
However, the implementation is not completed as if you select "Other folder" above to browse to find a new folder to file in, you are unable to browse groups. Just the folders in your mailbox as normal.
So getting there!

Our work is on the semi-annual release. Is there any indication when that will get it? We desperately need this feature.

@Scott_Whitmore We are in the same situation. Our users have 1908 from August 2019 and since DragDrop was in December 2019 version update I expect it till the end of next month. If not, we have a backup plan to bring all to monthly until semi-annual will contain it and then se it back.

Hi all - it would not work with me at all too... until about 5 mins ago when I updated my M365 Apps for Enterprise to Monthly 2004, Build 12730.20270.... and it worked... it finally worked! So I encourage you try the same if it afflicts you, and you are prompted with "update available"
Also, a workmate suggest I try some Outlook command line switches to clear the Outlook cache too, to see if that then got it working...
But I got it working with that patch, so no need at my end. Hope the patch works for you too if still no luck for drag and drop via Outlook client.

As of this week, we rolled out Drag and Drop functionality in Win32 to current channel users. Please give it a try and let us know your feedback. Thanks!

@Sri Ramya Mallipudi I'm sorry to say this is still not working for us. A few months ago we purchased Office 2019 in the hope that would make it possible, but it doesn't. Now I'm at Outlook 2019 Version 2004 (build 12730.20270 click and ready). But still I am unable to drop an e-mail from my inbox or public folder (which is what I want to be able to do) to a office 365 group. When are you going to make me happy?
May 14 2020 01:32 AM
@Sri Ramya Mallipudi It really would be nice if you could tell me why it is not working for us. We've been waiting for this to happen for over a year now. Which is why we are still not able to move to Office 365 groups, instead of Public Folders. Maybe we can do a remote session with MS Teams to solve this once and for all?

@Sri Ramya Mallipudi We are having issues with emails older than 6 months. We are receiving the error 0x9CD4010F "The operation failed. An object cannot be found"
May 14 2020 02:24 AM
@Scott_Whitmore That's for sure something we would NOT want to happen. We have projects with emails older then 10 years ago that we occasionally still would want to be able to access. As we now can with public folders. Aslong as moving old existing e-mails to Office 365 groups does not proof to be reliable, we will need to keep storing our e-mails in Public Folders.

@HE-MJ I'm actually having the same issue with the web version of Outlook I believe. It seems it might not directly be related to the drag and drop feature of Win32 Outlook.
