Before answering the above, I would argue it useful to have more ways to easily 
delete than only the control-click. IMO customary for a GUI to supply buttons 
for the most frequent actions. Shall we supply in the Inbox a "Delete message" 

When allowing the user to delete a message that pertains to unreviewed 
documents or labs, do we wish to warn the user that this only deletes the 
notification (but that the related documents or results remain unreviewed)? I 
am wondering if it is better to not allow this, in other words that it is only 
after (automagically upon) their being reviewed that these would disappear and 
attempts to delete them prematurely would issue a warning?

This might answer whether it is a bug that despite trying to delete 
"clinical/review results" / "unreviewed results for patient Kirk" the message 
does not in fact get deleted?

Do we wish to make it possible in the inbox to reassign the message to some 
other clinician? Wishlist? Or would it automagically happen already if 
unreviewed results would be reassigned?

Double-clicking would ideally bring the user to useful action. In absence of 
any other defined workflow for a message category and type, I would suggest we 
keep the popup, and that it say:

        "No double-click action defined for this message category and type."

and it could even supply within the popup the option to delete since this 
should likely be an appropriate "dumb" option for any type of message for which 
no hook-up had yet been done.
