If you delete a message from the pager in mutt, it loads the next message into the pager. How can I change the behavior so that it kicks me back to the mailbox when I delete a message from the pager?

Put this macro in your muttrc:

macro pager d <exit><delete-message> "delete current message and exit to index"
