im really sorry i had to make a thread for an easy answer but i promised my mom i would help her. we just bought a mac mini bc our windows machine crapped out. anyway she uses email all the time and she is using mail 5. her problem is when you click the delete button for a message it moves to the top message after. is there anyway when you click delete it will move to the message below. its such a small deal but she is not techie at all and gets frustrated with these since she is used to outlook express. i looked in around and can't find it. thanks and sorry for the thread.
