Remove Delete, Archive, Flag from the center of the list of emails
Having Delete, Archive, and Flag right in the middle between name and subject is a really bad place. Move it all the way to the left, right, or remove all together. Whenever i click an email im accidentally clicking delete.

Yep - the hide/show makes it even worse.
I'm talking about the buttons that show when I hover over a message in the inbox, when the reading pane is below the messages. The location between "from" and "Subject" columns is horrible. It's too easy to click on them when I'm trying to select a message. Move them back to the far right of the pane.
completely agree, deleted a few emails by mistake as I didn't realise that I was even clicking the delete button?!

I accidentally deleted a few emails yesterday because of the locations of these inline buttons. We need a preference to remove these buttons, and an option to place them on the right side of the window.
I agree this is a problem--you naturally point to the center of a list item and that is where this buttons are. And they are not visible until you hover over the item, so they appear right as you are clicking and you accidentally click them.
