How do i set "double click in white space" in Inbox to create new message?

Hello,
Thanks for your time.
I have a small problem here which I hope can be easily fixed.
When I double click in the white space in Inbox a "new post" window appears.
In other folders, the double click in white space starts a new message.
How can I set Inbox to do the same?
Thanks again.

Ot_Gu--What version of Outlook do you use?  I use Outlook 2010.
When I left click the white space anywhere close to a message title in any Outlook folder, the message is automatically highlighted and the message opens .
If I first highlight a message and then single Right click I get many options.  One is Delete, another is Reply, but many more.  There is no New Post option.
If I single Right click within any folder as far away as possible from a message, I do get the New E-Mail option in a context menu.  And if I double Left click within any folder as far away as possible from a message the new message window opens.

Maybe you need to click in a white space far from a message.  And note the difference between right and left clicks and double clicks.


P.S.  What difference do you mean between "New Post" and "new message".

Thanks for the reply. I am using Outlook 2010. Apologies for the ambiguity in my earlier post.
When I double Left click the white space in the Inbox folder, far away from any message items which may be in the folder, a "New post" titled "Untitled Discussion" opens. The same is achieved by New Items<More Items<Post in This Folder or by shortcut Ctrl+Shift+S.
In other folders, in fact it seems to be every folder except Inbox, as you mention in your post, a new Message appears.
Please can you help how I change this setting so that when I double left click in my Inbox, far away from any message items which may be in the folder, a new message appears and not "new post in this folder" item.
