I was wondering if it were possible, upon deletion of a message in the message window, to open the next message. I couldn't find anything in the list archives that covered this, but sorry if I overlooked something.

It's possible. It would just be a change in the default behavior from the current move-to-trash and close the window.

Personally, I would like the change because I tend to open a single message window and the move through all my new messages there. However, there are people who open multiple message windows and work differently.

We could have the 'D' key 'move to trash (and update to the next message)' and 'Ctrl+D' 'move to trash and close the window'. Unfortunately, 'Ctrl+D' is used in the main window for flagging a message as delete. This would undoubtedly cause confusion unless we change some of the shortcuts around.

Maybe Message->Toggle Flag->Flagged should be L or !
 and Message->Toggle Flag->Deleted could be X

Then we could do the above. Does this cause problems for anyone? Any other ideas?

On the topic of shortcuts, what do people think about bug #123018?

Similar to this problem reported 3 years ago:

deleting a message should update the message window if that message is
open.  Frankly, for navigation's sake, I think it should open the next
message (see my recent message on the list) but even just closing the
open window would be preferable to keeping it displayed.

I'm not seeing the behavior outlined in that message using the lastest CVS version.
