Windows 7 - Delete an Email; I don't want the next message to open

Asked By So Cal User on 20-Nov-09 01:21 PM
After reading an email, I click on delte.  The next email message
automatically opens.

How can I configure my settings in Windows Mail so when I delete an open
message, the next message will not open?

I am running Vista.

I assume you are reading each message in its own window by double-
clicking on it. If so, when done reading that message, close the window,
then delete that message from the message list pane.
You may also want to turn off the preview pane:
View, Layout, uncheck "Show preview pane".

Hmmmm...

I never use the preview pane.

I double-click to open the message.  While that message is open, I click on

How can I configure me settings so that when I delete an open email message,
the next message will not automatically open?  I know this can be done in
Outlook.

I do not want to have to close the message and then delete it.

thanks again!

Hi Gary-

I never use the preview pane.

I doble-click to open a message.  After I am done reading it, I click on
DELETE.  The next message in my inbox opens up.

I DO NOT want to have to close the email and then delete it...I want to be
able to delete the message without having the next message opening.

I know this can be done in Outlook. How can I configure my setting in
Windows Mail so that the next email message will not automatically open?

Windows Mail is not Outlook. Windows Mail is free while Outlook
is a fairly expensive business class program. You cannot expect
the two programs to have the same level of features.
I gave you the only workaround.
