If you want to read the messages in your Yahoo Mail Inbox one after the other, the service's default settings aren't ideal. When you delete or file a message, it sends you to the Inbox, where you can open the next message. You can avoid this extra step when viewing your mail in a web browser and make Yahoo Mail go to the next message automatically after you're done with the one you're reading.
