Delete Mail messages with Control-H keyboard shortcut
Authored by: errolbert on May 22, '12 08:30:40AM

Curiously I discovered this control+h behavior by accident as well (and I knew control+h was delete in the terminal...).

I have a shortcut for The Hit List set as shift+command+h and was trying it on my home computer and it didn't work (I hadn't set it) and so was trying other combinations when I hit control+open+h and permanently (and instantly) deleted several emails that had just arrived in my inbox. I didn't realize I had deleted several over the course of my various combinations...

I think the option+delete command should ask for confirmation, at least the first time you've used it in a while.
