That's too bad, it worked exactly like I want it to.

No, it isn't.  It is in the spec.

People are different that is why any software should be as flexible as 
possible.  In this case having an option to display "delete option when 
deleting locally" would do the trick, that way people who didn't want to 
answer the question everytime could opt out, I and others could opt in.

I think I have the latest diablo,  it is really strange it is almost like the 
light blinks before the actual email has downloaded the new messsages.  I did 
some testing today and if I wait long enough after the blinking light, like 
2-3 minutes not only does the light stay blinking after the display comes on, 
the lower left function works.  Very strange.
