I'd like a feature in Tb like 10+ years available in The Bat!. It's kind a "starred" feature already available, but the parked message cannot be moved and always stays below unread messages, so it is kinf of "todo".

Here is a working URL of the feature discription.
Message parking is designed to prevent accidental deletion of valuable messages. When a message is parked, you will not be able to move it to another folder, nor will it be deleted or automatically purged. It is also impossible to delete a folder that contains one or more parked messages, or contains a sub-folder which contains a parked message.

To park a message, just select it in the message list, and click on the blue dot next to it. Once the message is parked the blue dot will turn into parking icon .

You can also park a message by right-clicking on it and selecting Park from the dropdown menu:

Summary: parking of messages → parking of messages - prevent deletion, purge, moving (both manual and automatic)

I think we should just use a special tag. I propose using ".parked" (dot to denote it's a system property, like unix)
This would not show up as a regular tag, and marking as read would need manual marking. Deleting/moving would be prohibited.
