I use the registry, but not the agent.

Yes -- indeed, I will rely on this in testing, since otherwise I'd have
no real way to mark the contents of my "sacrificial mailbox" as unread
again to retest :) thank goodness it only does it on entry to the group,
not on every refresh, or I'd be unable to test this without wrecking all
the read marks on all my work email!

I honestly can't remember, but I think it was O (M is rare enough that I
remember it when it appears). I'll check when I replicate this, probably
this weekend.
