VM provides general purpose marks that may be applied to any and all messages within a given folder. Certain VM commands can be subsequently invoked only on those messages that are marked.
To mark the current message, type M M
vm-mark-message). If you give a numeric prefix argument
n, the next n-1 messages will be marked as well. A negative
prefix argument means mark the previous n-1. An asterisk
(`*') will appear to the right of the message numbers of all marked
messages in the summary window.
To remove a mark from the current message, use M U
vm-unmark-message). Prefix arguments work as with
Use M m to mark all messages in the current folder; M u removes marks from all messages.
Other marking commands:
To apply a VM command to all marked messages you must prefix it with the
key sequence M N (
vm-next-command-uses-marks). The next VM
command will apply to all marked messages, provided the command can be
applied to such messages in a meaningful and useful way.
