Opening instead of dragging

I have a user that brought this to my attention. They are in their mail database, no preview pane. They want to drag a message into trash. Sometimes it works and sometimes, if they hold down the left mouse button a little long, the document opens. We don't want this to happen. What is the cause, and can it be corrected?

Checked that.  I am beginning to think it may be just the mouse itself.
