How does one delete mail in each of these programs without viewing it first?

If you don't have preview pane running, just click on the email to highlight it and right click and select delete or highlight it and select delete in the tool bar. Is this what you mean or do you mean some kind of block or something that stops it from entering the inbox?

I guess what I need to know now is how I keep the preview pane from running.

I want to be able to read the title and sender and delete it without ever seeing the body of the message.

Alex, If you don't want to see the preview pane go to view, layout and untick show preview pane.

Click the 'view' menu, and find 'preview pane' and click on it, it should disappear

Thanks for the suggestions. I am really asking for a relative who lives several states away. I'll give him a link to this page.

Also,
Tools-->Read Tab. Uncheck "Automatically...viewing in preview pane"
