Delete key is screwy in Outlook 2003

In Outlook 2003 pressing the delete key to delete a message deletes the 
message, and moves the selection bar up one item.  It is lame.  Is there 
some way to fix this?  The delete key should just delete the item that is 
selected (items below will effectively move up to fill the deleted spot). 
The position of the selection bar shouldn't be changing when deleting (same 
as the way the cursor behaves in a word processor, pressing delete does not 
move the position of the cursor).
