Tag the messages you want to work on.

then hit ;  to act on all tagged messages

then W  you should see  Clear flag? (D/N/O/r/*/!):

if you hit w it would be the reverse  (set flag)

I've got a mailbox with quite a few msgs in it, some I've never read but
don't want to delete. All those now  have a status flag of "O", so if I
enter that mailbox when there are no "N" messages in it, mutt goes to the
first "O" mail.
One way I can think of to solve this is to clear all the flags, since in
this case I don't care aobut the flags value.
It looks as if Mutt has facilities that could be used for that, but I
haven't figured out how to apply them.
Can someone show me how to do that?
Thanks in advance.
tag all of the "O" flagged msgs
"T" will tag a pattern, invoke in directory view, capitol T
pattern would be: ~O
invoke action "W" on tagged, :W
"W" clears flag
issue clear-flag for the tagged msgs
two lines beginning with "invoke action" s/b belowe "issue clear-flag" ...
clear as muddd  :)
