|OLKeeper reliably prevents users from closing their Outlook window and thus possibly missing reminders or e-mails.|
If you have opened an e-mail then you can use two toolbar buttons to move to the next or previous e-mail. If you move on and want to delete the read e-mail then that's not easy: Either you switch to the folder view, select the formerly read e-mail and hit detele, or you have to delete the currently opened e-mail before moving to the next item - but then the window closes and you can't move easily to the next item.
This sample shows how to move with a single click to the next e-mail and delete the read one.
Note: The sample doesn't work in Outlook 2000 if word is your mail editor because then the NewInspector event doesn't fire.
When the e-mail window is opened, please customize the toolbar and create a new button that calls the 'NextItemAndDeleteCurrent' function.
