Re: Failure of Delete shortcut key
- Your understanding of the issue is correct, Ryan. The "delete"
keystroke does not work when viewing an individual message in a tab.
I understand your comment about the ability to open multiple tabs, but
this is a resource hog. My preferred way of navigating new mail is
sequentially to process it from oldest to newest; in that process the
majority of my mail items are read, replied to if needed, and then
deleted before moving automagically to the next item.
