Offhand, these are probably the common ones in alpine:

P:    Move to the previous message
N:    Move to the next message
J:    Jump to a specific message
Tab:  Next new message

Operations on current message
R:    Reply to message
D:    Mark for deletion
U:    Undelete (remove deletion mark)
T:    Take Address into Address Book
S:    Save into an email folder
E:    Export as a plain text file
B:    Bounce message
F:    Forward message
*:    Flag message
|:    Pipe message
%:    Print message

Miscellaneous operations
H:    Full header mode
G:    Goto a specified folder

Mutt probably has a similar set.

Some commands have analogs that do the same thing appropriate for their
context, e.g. -/space to show the previous/next screen/page using typical
Unix pager utility conventions, but that's pretty minor.
