In classic view, I want new emails to appear at the bottom and scroll up automatically

I have Thunderbird 31.0, used in classic view. The top right pane is set to sort by date, latest at the top. If I have several emails to read, I have to read them in reverse order to their arrival if I want to read the next in the list after deleting a read email. If I choose to move the cursor to read the least recent new email and then delete it, the focus changes to an already read email, not the next unread email, which is what I would prefer. If I sort by date, newest at the bottom, the focus changes as I would like BUT new emails are hidden at the bottom of the pane until I use the scroll bar to access the new ones. This is irritating too! Surely I cannot be the only one to see this as a problem. Any suggestions - are there layout options I have missed. Thanks in anticipation, Hugh
