I've some confusion about "read" and "unread" versus "old" and "new".
There are status flags for new and old. Unread messages seem to be new,
but if I read a message it doesn't acquire an "(O)ld" flag, though it
loses its "(N)ew" flag.
I've skimmed the manual, and i can't see what the criteria are for
considering a message New or Old.
What I'm trying to resolve is this:
When I enter a mailbox I want to collapse all the read threads. However,
in a mailing list box my own messages land in the box, and they're both
New and Unread. So before i collapse the threads-with-no-unread I want
to mark all my own messages as read.
It's easy to find these messages, but I can't see how to mark them as
"read". I can mark threads and subthreads as read, but not individual
