This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

In the trunk version of VM, you can use `M-0 .' That is, with a prefix argument 0, run `vm-mark-message-read'.

With the public release, you have to mark all the messages using `M R' and then do `M n' and M-x vm-mark-message-read.
