off topic - Isn't there an Email setting to "Go back to Inbox after viewing message"..?.. RRS feed

  • General discussion


    I've pulled out enough hair on this. (not much to start with hehehe)

    After I view a message and move it to a folder, I'd like to just go back to my inbox each time, instead of automatically viewing the next message.

    I suspect there is no such setting in Hotmail, at least I could not find it, but I'm surprised that it would be so limited, compared to other online mail systems (being Microsoft and all...)

    If anyone can confirm my findings or point me to where the setting is, I would appreciate it.

    The only way that I know to accomplish what you want is to use the Reading pane instead of viewing the message full pane. That way the message list remains on screen at all times while viewing the message in a smaller space, of course.
