Definitely not - for me! What I need (and longingly remember from an
very old MUA) is a "Back" key that does what Daniel describes above
(following back and forth my reading history, regardless of
directories and accounts). That was useful!

It's in fact what > View > Go To > Last Read Message does, except this
only goes back one message where it should be 100 or even all since
session start, and it doesn't go back to another directory or account.

But I'm not complaining here. This is in fact the only feature I miss
in Claws, and that's much more than I ever could hope for. ;)
