Build ID: 20151014143721

Steps to reproduce:

Select a message.
Hit delete to delete the message, or move (either via menu or with drag and drop) the message to different folder.

Actual results:

If the message was the last on the list, the previous message is selected.
Otherwise, it is always the next message that gets selected and displayed.

Expected results:

There should be an option so that the user has the control over this.
The options should be "always select next", "always select previous", "no auto-selection (deselect)", "select next unread", "select the last previous selection", ...
Actual results are confirmed. But this is not a bug and feature improvements.
