Deleting messages in evolution

hi all,

i've got a question regarding Evolution. What is the procedure to delete a message without opening it. The thing is that my school mail server identifies a spam message and appends 'Spam' to the subject line so that further such messages can be blocked. But if the message is opened, the mails won't be filtered. In Mozilla Thunder bird one could right-click and delete a mail without opening it but Evolution opens the mail message even with the right-click. Is there any setting that needs to be changed so the right-click will not open the message.

Bro - in Evo, the messages will be listed in your Inbox, and won't be opened until you click them. After you check Email, while the messages are still in your Inbox, just highlight any that are spam and delete. Specifically, go to the Inbox, move the cursor over the Subject, LEFT click to highlight the message, then "CTL-click" the From as needed to highlight all the spam, then RIGHT click to Delete. That should do it -- J.W.
