Delete email without opening it?

I'm lucky in that I don't get spam these days, but a friend does. I believe if you open spam, it signals to the sender that yours is an actual address.

I can't see a way in Outlook Express to delete without it opening - even the right click option opens it.

if you only click it once it does not open ,just highlights it, so you can delete it

If you are using the preview pane then emails open as soon as you click them so disable it from View, Layout. Now emails will only open when double-clicked and can be deleted from a right-click or dragged into the deleted items folder.

It may be my mouse is giving a double right click then. I'll find the receipt.

There's no such thing as a double right-click. It just counts as a single one.

Preview pane disabled. I can do it now - thanks both.

Try double clicking with the right button, you'll see what I'm getting.
