Interesting application!  Here are the basic ideas.

You would need to set vm-arrived-message-hook or vm-arrived-messages-hook to
delete the new mail.

You would need to define a virtual folder for the kind of messages you want
to read.  See in particular, the `thread' virtual-selector operator.

vm-mark-messages-by-virtual-folder should allow you to mark these messages.

> 4. Un-delete all those emails.

M N u does it.

> 5. Clear the marks.

M u does it.

(All this applies to VM 8.2.0b.  Can't say if it works in older versions.)
