37.2 Scrolling Within a Message

When Rmail displays a message that does not fit on the screen, you must scroll through it to read the rest. You could do this with C-v, M-v and M-<, but in Rmail scrolling is so frequent that it deserves to be easier.

<SPC>

Scroll forward (scroll-up).

<DEL>

Scroll backward (scroll-down).

.

Scroll to start of message (rmail-beginning-of-message).

/

Scroll to end of message (rmail-end-of-message).

Since the most common thing to do while reading a message is to scroll through it by screenfuls, Rmail makes <SPC> and <DEL> synonyms of C-v (scroll-up) and M-v (scroll-down)

The command . (rmail-beginning-of-message) scrolls back to the beginning of the selected message. This is not quite the same as M-<: for one thing, it does not set the mark; for another, it resets the buffer boundaries to the current message if you have changed them. Similarly, the command / (rmail-end-of-message) scrolls forward to the end of the selected message.
