In message ID - <749973D8-977C-4E5F-85C9-B6DB774DF2EC at raz.org> I 
reported that I was having problems getting 
MmMessagesOutlineMoveStrategy to work as I thought it had been 

I have now tested this and I think it is a bug.

If you have
MmMessagesOutlineMoveStrategy set to ‘Next’
MmSingleMessageWindowClosesAfterMove -bool NO

then when viewing a message, you can use the space bar to move down the 
current message and then it will open the next message.

It will not open the next message automatically if you press the delete 
key (would be nice if this was possible and controllable).

If however you have
MmSingleMessageWindowClosesAfterMove -bool YES
MmMessagesOutlineMoveStrategy set to ‘Next’

then using the space bar will not move you to the next message.

No combination appears to move the focus to the next message if you are 
deleting items in the pane view of messages in a mailbox (without 
viewing them). So if you want to delete a load of known-by-subject spam, 
you can’t highlight the first and then just use the delete key to 
delete them all, you have to select them and then hit delete.

This behaviour was also in v5721
