If this is for a Mac, you need to group your buttons.  For this example 
will call the group "my menu".  Then you set the menubar of 
"yourmainstack" to "my menu".  Once you do that, your Mac menus will 
show up with accelerator keys ready to go.

The "/" is for the cmd.
I do not know if shift and option are supported.  Maybe someone else 
will know.

You should set up your e-mail client to read in this mail.  The 
built-in mail app can group threaded messages pretty well.  Mail lists 
do not do well in browsers.  Forums and browsers go better together.
