[Users] How to automatically focus opened email instead of email list

I am not sure about what the English menu names are, but in the
menu View there is the section Browse to, with a menu opening when you
put the cursor on it. There you can even set the keys you like for
brwosing up and down in a message. It's the same effect as Enter and
Backspace, as mentioned in this thread. You set the keys by hovering
with the cursor above the function you want to set and by pressing the
key you want to set.
