Hot key to go to the head of the list?

I am still new to the Mac and have trouble getting to the first email in the list, for example.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
