Use arrow keys to scroll open email

The Problem

The arrow keys need to scroll an email when it is open, rather than navigating to the next message. This is extremely important to a keyboard workflow, and it is very disruptive when I have no option to read a message besides moving to the mouse.

Proposed Solution

When a message is open, arrow keys should scroll.

Alternative Solutions

Make scrolling a configurable keybind.


Gmail works this way. I already use Gmail hotkeys because I’m trying to replace my usage of Gmail.
