outlook 2007, deleting emails one by one focus moves to top

i have office 2007 using outlook and when i delete emails one by one because i need to read them and confirm i can delete them. it seems after deleting like 10 or so the Focus higlhight of the email moves back up to the top of the inbox and i have to take the mouse and move it back to the one i was looking at or i push the down arrow key to get me back to were i was. WHY does outlook do this. the view i have is Window view on the bottom and emails above this window in category just emails no preview pane.

Outlook does a re-indexing of the Folder just like Windows Explorer/File Explorer sometimes will, just refreshing its 'mind'. There's not been much change in that process over the past versions. A couple of my Webmail accounts do the same and that's with messages on their Server.

Might be an issue with the company email domain service
I can't say I've seen the same issue I use HostMonster as a email service/ domain name host and outlook 2007 works well so I doubt a newer version of office will fix anything

I do not archive email messages on my domain host server which might be the difference ?

I push to outlook and a gmail account for archive
