Outlook Express manually open email

Posted on 2004-09-30
Last Modified: 2010-04-14
Dear Experts

When I delete an email by selecting it in outlook express and hitting the "del" key on my keyboard, outlook express automatically jumps to the next email. How can I stop this from happening so that I have to manually select each email before it is opened?

Many thanks

That is perfectly normal. Once you delete an email from any folder other than deleted items, the email automatically goes to the deleted items folder , hence OE jumps to next email...

Your second part of the question is not the same as the first.
What is your issue is not clear ?

May be you are not clear or I was not saying it clear
if you delete email from the folder, that email gets moved to the deleted items folder and the cursor gets shifted to the next email. that is by design .. You cannot change that behavior
