Message Marks
*************

   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 message that are marked.

   To mark the current message, type `C-c C-@' (`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 `C-c SPC'
(`vm-unmark-message'.  Prefix arguments work as with `vm-mark-message'.

   Use `C-c C-a' to mark all message in the current folder; `C-c a'
removes marks from all messages.

   To apply a VM command to all marked message you must prefix it with
the key sequence `C-c RET' (`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.  The current
commands that can be applied to marked message are:
`vm-delete-message', `vm-discard-cached-data', `vm-followup',
`vm-followup-include-text', `vm-reply', `vm-reply-include-text',
`vm-save-message', `vm-save-message-sans-headers', `vm-send-digest',
`vm-undelete-message', and `vm-unread-message'.
