    Hi.. i just started my Windows Mail account, was using web based mail
    before. I cant seem to find how to checkmark multiple emails for
    deleting,moving to folders, etc. seems a real pain to take care of mail one
    by one as they open. Also if there is a way to close mail so the top one isnt
    always open in the preview box?

    Press control and highlight the ones you want to delete, when you have
    highlighted the ones to be deleted, press delete.

    Don't know the answer to your second question....sorry

    You can turn off the Preview pane,
    View - Layout
    Preview Pane
    uncheck [ ] Show Preview pane

    But what's wrong with having it open?

    Turn off the Preview Pane.

    Select a message. If you hold down the Shift key while clicking another it
    will select everything in between. If you hold down the Ctrl key while
    clicking it will just select (or unselect) that one in addition to what is
    already selected.

    If you select a message and press Ctrl-A it will select all messages.
