Re: getting the repeting of the subject line in an e-mail to stop repeting when you open a message

I haven't used skim mode and I haven't looked into what it does.  You can just use the read to end command if you wish whether you have skim mode checked or not. 
 
Don't assume that extra steps are necessary when figuring out how to work around a problem.  you assumed that it was necessary to move to the top of the message and did an unnecessary command.  I'm pointing this out because you may have made inefficient and unsupported assumptions elsewhere and experimentation may allow you to do one or more things faster and more efficiently.
