Mark all as read in Mail via AppleScript

You can accomplish the same thing by hitting Cmd-A then hitting Cmd-Shift-U. (Message menu > Mark > As Read/Unread)

You can also do this by creating a keyboard shortcut for the contextual menu item.

Brilliant! I didn't realize OS X would recognize contextual menus for shortcuts. Two points for you.

I cannot assign a shortcut for the contextual menu in the sidebar. "mark all messages read" (or something like that, in my German OS X it is called "Alle Nachrichten als gelesen markieren") which is availlable when right clicking on a folder/account in the Mail sidebar does not seem to be assignable...
