        when opening and deleting an individual email, you automatically go back to list of emails. In Yahoo, you automatically see next email in full / opened and can delete / move / reply etc straight away. This is very useful.

        when we read a message and delete having the automatic option to read next message.
        currently it is necessary to open manually the next message.

        want to keep my spot when i delete emails. it keeps putiing me back at the top of the email list every time I delete. then i jave to go back and double & triple review the same emails.
        hate current system-not at all user friendly.

        after reading and deleting an email, I would be directed back to my inbox. I would prefer to be directed to the next email or at least have the option in the settings to on this function.

        In my phone app, I would like to view an email, delete it, and then be able to move to the next email instead of going to the home page.

        Would like the ability to choose what happens after I delete an email. There are no "automatic processing" options.

        In the current Outlook app for Android after opening and moving or deleting a message the app goes back to the inbox. I'd like to see an option in the app settings or elsewhere for going to the next message after taking the previously described actions.

        open email once clicked on. stop sending my insurance plus to junk mzil. I almost lost car insurance. had to pay late fees on a few thongs. because I Use electric bill sending. It's not a good thing. Just stop asking. it's still the same issues. just let us choose our email . live or Outlook. Tha would be great.

        Every other mail client I've used gives a configuration option for what to do after deleting a message: return to the message list, go to next, or go to previous. In the Android Outlook client I do not see any such option and the behavior is only to return to the message list which is my least desired choice. I avoid using this client as much as possible for that reason.

        In the movil version there is no options to configure the actions after delete a message. It's tedious to return to the list always.

        Hi

        Is there a way that when I'm reading my mail and I've decided to delete it, that the next email will coming up automatically rather always going back to the Inbox or which ever folder I'm in? I've looked for it but I can't find it. I know other email apps have it and it is so much better doing it that way.

        This is also my issue. It makes sense and saves time. Why does it return to inbox after deleting an email? Should just show the next email automatically instead of having to click on the next repeatedly. Annoying.
