kmail should not select the next available message when deleting something. 
The reason is that the following message is thereby marked as read even 
though one just intended to delete some uninteresting messages. 
 Of course that way you can't go through your mails deleting them one by one.
Maybe one keybinding to 'delete currently selected messages' and one to 
'delete currently selected messages and select next' would make everybody 
happy ?

This bug is also apparent when selecting multiple messages and deleting them: When I select a connected or nonconnected set of messages and I delete them, then after deletion a number of different messages are still selected. This number may be lower than the original amount of selected messages though.

Still, I strongly feel that this behaviour is underisable (If I click delete twice, I've deleted a (to me) unknown amount of messages.

This goes for kmail 3.1.5

@Uli: The mark as read thingie is configurable, and selecting the next message is what people expect, so I'll close this as WONTFIX since we won't change the current behavior.

@Niek: What you describe has been fixed in KMail 1.6. It no longer selects more than one message after operations on multiple messages.
