Thanks, that's what I usually do. I've gotten used to Outlook, where you have 3 options after moving or deleting an open item:
-Open the previous item (which opens the next item up, like I want it to do)
-Open the next item (which is what Hotmail does by default)
-Return to the Inbox
After playing with it, I'm thinking there isn't an option to get Hotmail to do what I want.
