Right, I figured that.  However, I just was in LaszloMail and I clicked on  
a message title in my inbox.  I've sized my message list so that a  
vertical scrollbar appears.  Rolling the scroll wheel has no effect.  If I  
move my mouse over the message itself, it will scroll, but I assume that  
is because the message is in an IFrame and the browser is handling that.

All this being said, I've never seen vertical scrolling working in a  
regular LaszloApplication.  For example, running the LZRReference, I've  
never been able to get the left pane to scroll no matter what I do  
(clicking in it, etc.)
