Scroll Mail's message list a page at a time
Authored by: gralem on Dec 25, '04 12:46:05PM
I kind of have the opposite problem. I try to read my email w/o the mouse, and I change messages in the list pane one at a time with the arrow keys. For scrolling emails, the ONLY way I know how is with the page-up/down. I always want to scroll a line at a time through the message. Unfortunately, I have to scroll a page at a time and lose the context of the rest of the email.

Thanks,

just hit the tab-key once and you can scroll the message one line at a time with the down-arrow-key.

to get back to the messages list pane hit the tab-key twice (there's the search field in between) and you can scroll the messages again.

I am not sure if have been missing this solution, but why are you not scrolling with the Space Bar?

When you hit the Space Bar, the message can be read fluently and by the time you reach the end of it, one extra hit of the SB will scroll your e-mail list , down( or up with the Shift-SB combo Key) to the next message. This is a borrowed feature from (old) Outlook Express and Entourage.

While reading, you can also hit Option-SB or Shift-SB and move upwards in the same message, this is back to the begginning, equivalent to PageUp.

Anyways it is a bit messy. I use the SB to read and the arrows to move from one message to another, to avoid some of the "finger mess" this key combos creates, forcing me to play the keyboard like an expert Piano guy,although some may get used to it.

Regards.
