in thread Message Inbox nit

How about a delete button next to each message? To delete multiple messages, the user would fall back to the current interface.
Pro: Single click for a common operation. (Was: click + long move + click + drag + click.)
Con: Uses up a lot of screen real estate.

If the above takes up too much screen real estate, the drop box could be replaced with
Move selected to: [ Inbox ] [ Archive ] [ Deleted ]
Pro: Removes a click+drag, an operation requiring a fair bit of precision.
Pro: The options are not hidden in a drop box.
Con: Not forward compabtible if support for more folders is added.

    You mean like the ones that people can configure via message settings? :-)

    And IMO a button per message is too much.

    Dont get this reply wrong, im still interested in alternatives...


      haha! oops!

      Well, something I find myself doing all the time when I want to move a message is to modify the Folder droplist next to the message.
