Delete Outlook Emails With The Middle Mouse Button

Reader Grigory writes in with his ubergeeky script that deletes messages in Microsoft Outlook just by middle-clicking on them in the list—so you can make short work of cleaning out your inbox.

The magic works by a simple AutoHotkey script that checks for a middle-click on the Outlook window, and sends a left mouse button and then a Ctrl+D to delete the message. This means you can middle-click on the preview pane, or specific items in the list—or you can even use it to delete items from your calendar.

To create your own middle-click deleting feature, create a new AutoHotkey script, or add the following to your existing script. Once you've done that, launch the script and you should be in business.
