I also had similar problem .. here is the solution which u got after 2 days
include Ribbon xml file : (You will need to customize qat)
<button idMso="FileSave" /
<button id="PreviousAction" label="Previous"
supertip="Click to view previous email message"
onAction="Previous_Action" keytip="C" /
<button id="NextAction" label="Next"
supertip="Click to view next email message"
onAction="Next_Action" keytip="B" /
// do your action
//Call following to use default feature of Next arrow
same goes for previous action ..
