    Doesn't bother telling us how he is reading mail, expects us to give an
    answer. Did you try the DEL button?

    This is normal on some systems:

    If "DEL" is not the correct command key, try viewing the menu for the message reader you're using.

    SyncTERM is a terminal program. That wasn't the question. Which terminal program you use should make little/no difference in how you delete messages.

    Perhaps SyncTERM has Del and BS swapped. Try hitting backspace. Also sometimes Ctrl-Del.

    I'm in NCSA Telnet on a System6 Mac atm and I have to hit command-Del to backspace.

    Maybe your terminal is sending ASCII 127 (DEL) instead of Ctrl-H when you hit the backspace key. What terminal are you using?
