I'd like to write a macro (index, pager) that saves a message to the Archive mailbox but keep the current message open / selected, or even to to the previous entry.

My current macro:

macro index,pager a "<save-message>=Archive<enter><previous-entry><enter>" Archive

The problem is that <save-message> seems to jump to the next entry that is not deleted on its own, so calling <previous-entry> does not really do the trick afterwards.

Is there a way of staying at the current message or going to the previous entry after saving a message in a macro?


Attention! It disables the confirmation dialog temporarily.

macro index,pager a ":set confirmappend=no<enter><tag-prefix><copy-message>=Archive<enter><sync-mailbox>:set confirmappend=yes<enter>" Archive
