<p>In addition to the shortcuts listed below, you can also use accelerators to navigate with the keyboard.</p> 
<p>Hold down the <key>Alt</key> key to reveal <em>accelerators</em>:
underlined letters on menu items, buttons, and other controls. Press
<key>Alt</key> plus the underlined letter to activate a control, just
as if you had clicked on it.</p>

<item><p>If new messages arrive in a number of folders, <key>Space</key> toggles between those folders. This feature allows you to switch to the next unread message in a different folder without clicking the folder.</p></item>
