I'm a heavy TB user as well. It's my primary client (just check the header
of this message).
> The first is the split window layout that Thunderbird uses.
My RC 0.3.1 is laid out exactly like my TB: Folder list on the left,
message list on top right, and message preview on bottom right.

Why do you need the message in another window? Just view what's in the
preview pane to decide if it's spam, junk, or legit.
> I then just hit Delete
This works for me exactly as you describe it.

This works exactly the same way in RC 0.3.1.

It's a web application--NOTHING requires a double click.

All of these things are configurable by clicking the "Settings" option in
the top right corner. I can think of at least 3 you should have checked
that you probably currently do not. Look into the Settings and tweak them
to your liking.
