This is less than half the keyboard shortcuts in Mail. It has many editing shortcuts, probably the same as in Wordpad.
I found a number by trial-and-error. For instance Ctrl+ = for enter subscript mode. Same command to leave subscript mode. Ctrl + F for Find. Really, there is a whole set of these.
Although not part of Mail, it is very useful to copy characters from Character Map into an email. (Character Map lacks Help. It is often helpful to select ‘Group by;’ and then ‘Unicode Subrange’. Then click a wanted character, click Select and then Copy. The chosen characters can then be pasted into an email.)
I hit a keystroke combination and it prompted me for which account to send. Do you know that keyboard shortcut??
Meanings of SOME keyboard shortcuts is obscure:-
Account Manual Sync Ctrl+M or F9
Move between regions F6
Should I press Fn +F in the above cases?
