Mutt question: "How can I configure mutt for not automarking as read??"

Hi everybody

I am new to mutt. Before mutt, I was used to left the messages unread til I finished the task asociated with them, so my list of unfinished task was the list of new mail in my inbox.

I want to replicate this behaviour in mutt.

I have tried (with no luck):
- Moving the finished mails to other mail box, but by doing this I lose the threading capabilities because the rest of the threads are in other mail box.
- Changing the q macro such that it mark as unread the message after reading it. The problem with this is that if I enter into a read message, it gets marked as unread.

Any suggestion?

Thanx in advance
