I couldn't find an existing bug on this, so I filed a new one. Cross-account

I also ran a testing thread on this on MZ and got very positive feedback.

Fixing Bugzilla Bug 253268 would make this one a lot more friendly, as people
are going to want to not have to go find their messages to "unmark" in a
different way.
