Mouse wheel and OE6

Hello All!

When the number of posts is larger than can be contained in the window,
the mouse wheel scrolls up and down but when the window is not full, the
scroll causes a left-right motion. It is only a minor nuisance but I
would rather not have the left-right shift. Is there an options or other
setting to avoid it?

The right left scroll is because your columns do not fit in the width of the
message list area.
Reduce the columns width until there is no scrollbar under the list area or
increase the window width.

Right on; but why does the left/right scroll only occur when the up/down
scroll is irrelevant?

Scrolling up or down takes precedence or scrolling right or left.
Some programs will scroll right or left if the mouse pointer is over the
bottom scrollbar.
WLMail is not one of those programs.
