Yes, I see that. The way I am asking for works in Thunderbird. I open
the first unread mail, in a new window. Having read it or decided not
to bother I move on to the next unread mail which is then opened and
marked as read. If I decide to read it later there is a keyboard
shortcut to mark it as unread.

I just think that could be useful in claws. Still, I now know it
doesn't work like that, so I can work with the current system.

Thanks for all the help and information,
