Hi Rik,

I've come across this behaviour in Windows Mail with a gmail account via IMAP. 
When a message is deleted, there's a pause of a couple of seconds before the 
message is removed from the list, and Jaws incorrectly reads the headers of the 
deleted message. In this case, there didn't seem to be any work around, I think 
that Freedom Scientific would have to fix the script. Incidentally, NVDA did 
read it correctly.


original message:
I am using Windows Live Mail with the latest JAWS program, 10.0.1154.
I have had issues with it over time but a lot of things have improved and 
I'm doing okay with it.
And in no small measure some that help has come from conversations I have 
read on this list.
So thank you!

But I wondered if anyone has had this experience.
When I am just arrowing down in the List View of the email messages, and I 
delete the current message, and the focus goes to the next email message, 
JAWS invariably announces the message which was just deleted. JAWS does this 

In order to get JAWS to say the next message which is currently being 
focused, I need to arrow up and then back. If I am not careful, I may delete 
a message which I did not even hear of, is what I'm saying.

Any ideas?
