I just had that question answered not too long ago. To get Claws Mail
to advance to the next message after right-clicking the message in
the message list and choosing "Move to trash" or after highlighting
the message in the message list and clicking the Trash button in the
toolbar or pressing the Delete key:

1) Close Claws Mail.

2) Edit the clawsrc file in the hidden .claws-mail directory.

3) Find: next_on_delete=0

4) Change it to: next_on_delete=1

5) Save the file. 

It might be a good idea for the devs to consider making this a
checkbox for us to tick in the settings somewhere in the future. For
now, I have these instructions backed up in case I reinstall.
