You mark a message as new by moving it to the "new" directory, and mark it
as seen with the "cur" directory. Flags are normally added to the file name
(by mutt for example). However some MUA-Servers need more info, which is
then stored in extra files (imap is a pathological example for excessiv
additional state)
