Actually, just highlighting (right-clicking) the message shouldn't necessarily trigger the download. You may just be selecting a message (or series thereof) for immediate deletion, sometimes even preferably without downloading the message (some may remember the days that could be a very wise thing to do when running MSWin 95 or 98).

A related long-standing gripe I have with KMail is that it insists on selecting a message when you go into a folder, or when you delete the currently selected message(s). (I've been able to add a "select none" option for the selection-upon-folder-entry feature (in KMail 4.1x) but never figured out how to do this after deletion.
