Thanks for the update and good program, Hiro.

To me, this change to auto marking doesn't deal with the main issue,
i.e., it merely makes a not very good approach less cumbersome. The
underlying problem I experience is that Inbox focus goes to the
chronologically oldest selected message rather than the most recent new
(or selected) message. Since mine are sorted chronologically top to
bottom, that means I frequently have to scroll down to the bottom.
This new change merely saves me the trouble of having to re-bold the
older message.  If this approach were changed, then whether or not to
keep messages bolded would do well as a user option.
