move up to the next unread message after deleting a message, like Outlook for Windows.

Please, please, please allow this option (like Outlook for Windows has had forever).
My emails are displayed top-to-bottom in newest-to-oldest. I normally work chronologically oldest-to-newest when reading them. When I hit the delete key, the selection moves to the next oldest item (and the Reading Pane displays it). But I've already read that one! So every delete is a multi-key operation: delete, then change selection. It's annoying.

when deleting an email from the inbox, move cursor UP to next email, not DOWN. I work through mine chronologically some of the time so i's helpful to delete and move the the next email received after the one I'm dealing with
