OH MY GOD... I didn't know that!!!!

This is my third PowerBook and I have have been using Mail since it 
came out. I never knew that.
I just hit the space bar and it scrolled to the bottom and then hit it 
again to advance to the next email and then hit again to scroll to that 
emails next page.

I'm not kidding... I have been using my wireless mouse so long that I 
didn't know..

Well you learn something new every day.
