When viewing a message in a separate window in Apple Mail (Mountain Lion), how can I open the next message in the list with a keyboard shortcut?

I found navigating email in a thread incredibly frustrating especially for long email that have hundreds of lines of quoted text, and was trying to find the answer to this.

So here goes:

While in Open message window to see next message use the option cmd N
