"Next Message" In Apple's Mail.app - Mac Networking

I have one continuing complaint about Mail.app that either (1) simply has not been addressed or resolved or (2) is a feature that has been there all along but I am too dumb to find it. It does not appear possible to simply move on to read the next unread message from within a message you have just read.

    Default "Next Message" In Apple's Mail.app

    I have one continuing complaint about Mail.app that either (1) simply
    has not been addressed or resolved or (2) is a feature that has been
    there all along but I am too dumb to find it.

    It does not appear possible to simply move on to read the next unread
    message from within a message you have just read.

    Most e-mail readers I have used have an icon you can click to read the
    next message or a keyboard combo (such as CNTRL-N) which allows you to
    do the same thing. But I cannot find either in Mail.app. And I do find
    it annoying and time consuming to have to click a message closed before
    clicking the next one to open and read it. Am I missing something
    everyone else knows about (such that you all are giggling hysterically
    over this posting)?

    I don't think so - that's the way it works, IF you double click. If
    you single click, and have the message pane open (see
    [url]http://aplawrence.com/MacOSX/macosxmail.html[/url] for what mine looks
    like if that leaves you saying "huh?"), then single clicking on
    the next message in the header pane displays that.

    The arrow keys allow you to move both forward to the next message
    and backward to the previous message.
