Sorry to hear that. It's a bit late now, but what you could have done
is to mark all (m a) in the virtual buffer before leaving it with C-c
q. The idea behind this feature is that you can further refine the
selection of messages by one of the selective message marking
I have asked on this list for a mark that behaves like *, but which
does not have the side effects of altering the state of messages on
the server. That would require a bit of rethinking of how marks work,
I think, so it's more than an afternoon's hack.
