So if I understand the bone envelope is affecting all the required vertices but when you animate it, it won't move. It should be working if that's true, but you could try this.

You can "Paint" the vertices that you need by clicking the Paint Weights button. Then your cursor changes to a paintbrush. Set the Max strength to 1.0 and close the dialog box. Then paint over the vertices you need.

If you are using the Skin modifier, in the Parameters rollout click Edit Envelopes. Its under the Weight Properties section where you will find Paint Weights* underneath the Weight Table button. You'll also find the Weight Tool (it looks like a spanner/wrench). Try using the Weight Tool to specifically change the weights of each vertex.

*May not be the tool to start off with, sorry.
