    Had my iMac for just over a month and am slowly getting used to it and the differences from Windows. With all the virus problems Windows had, I never used the preview pane--actually I had it shut off in Windows. I would delete out any spam (that got by the spam filter) and view my mail full screen, and as I deleted a message it would bring the next one up full screen. Is there a way I can do that in Mail? Please remember I am a newbie, so don't get too technical with me. :)

    I just would like to view my e-mails in full screen with it automatically opening the next one after deleting (or moving) a message. If it's not possible, I can adapt, like I have with the delete key which backspaces... ;)

    Mac OS X doesn't do full screen like Windows does. You don't have the same malware issues on a Mac that you did on Windows. There has never been a virus in the wild that affects Mac OS X since it was released 10 years ago. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some education and common sense and care in what software you install:

    Ok, so I can't set my e-mail up to read it and go from message to message in full screen. Ok, I will adapt.
