Cmd + Home will take you to the top of the mail list but it doesn't move the current selection.
Likewise Cmd + End to the bottom of the list.

In some programs and utilities, Finder for instance, Opt+arrow keys and Opt+Page Up or Page Down do the job for you. They don't work in Mail.

I have a laptop and therefore no Home, End, PgUP nor PgDn keys.

For the MacBook Home command, press Fn + Left Arrow. For the End command, press Fn + Right Arrow.
