Re: I want to delete email message and view next message not the inbox folder

In the new email format, there is no setting to alter the selection direction, as you have discovered.  However, what I have found is that if you delete a message when you have it open in the reading pane, it will take you to the message below it.  If you use the checkbox to the left of the message, and the message is not open, then delete it, you will go up to the message above it.  This appears to be the default, and it can't be changed.  I tried using both the vertical and horizontal views and it works the same in either one.

I want to delete email message and view next message not the inbox folder

Currently when I have an email message open and I click delete it deletes the message and returns me to the inbox mail folder. I want it to delete the message andnshow me the next email message. I can find nothing in the settings to change it to behave this way.
