Threaded conversations and the Next Button

    I like reading the conversations in newsgroups and email groups threaded to
    keep things in context. However, when I hit the next button, it goes to the
    next conversation rather than the next message in the same conversation.
    Right now, I have to expand the conversation so each message in the
    conversation is listed. Is there a way to enable the conversations to be
    expanded so I can hit the next button and just read each message by
    conversation?

    I have missed this, too. Have not found a solution as of yet.

    In the view menu there is a reference to CTRL+> to view the next message,
    but that seems to do the same as the DOWN ARROW.

    Oh, just noticed: CTRL+U goes to the next unread message, and seems to open
    conversations on the way.

    I found that as well, but it likes to go to the next message. If the thread
    isn't expanded, it will go to the next thread. I guess it depends on the
    definition of next. Next is the next one on the list and if the thread
    isn't expanded, then the next one is the first one of the next thread. I
    think next message should mean next message and not next thread. Of course,
    having the ability to allow one to expand the threads with one cleverly
    placed keystroke would make a lot of me very happy.

    Ok, this did make sense when I wrote, but not now that I'm reading it. I'm
    so sorry. lol. It's late and I just can't do it again.

    On the build I'm using CTRL+U seems to go to the next unread message, even
    if it's in the same thread. I'm using build 1172.

    Yes, that's what I'm using now as well. Just wish there was a way to expand
    all the threaded conversations at once. Helps seeing how long the thread is
    and who's responding to determine whether I want to read it.

    Good point, that would definitely be nice.
