Reason for the beep
Authored by: jmacak on Jul 08, '05 10:52:03AM
As "welshby" noted, the option + up/down arrow key will move to the previous/next message in a thread. (This keyboard shortcut is listed in Mail's Help.)

The beep occurs when you use the keyboard shortcut and there is no previous/next message in the thread. Hence the beep serves as audible feedback for a failed command.

The use of the prolonged hold of the option + up/down arrow key to move to the top/bottom of the full list of messages (the subject of this hint) is not documented in Mail's Help.
