Pulling this out of memory, so someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

You mentioned earlier that you were using the Maildir format.
Look in the /cur part of the mail folder.  The file will end with 
"2,(flags)" where (flags) are:

Flag "P" (passed): the user has resent/forwarded/bounced this message to 
someone else.
Flag "R" (replied): the user has replied to this message.
Flag "S" (seen): the user has viewed this message, though perhaps he 
didn't read all the way through it.
Flag "T" (trashed): the user has moved this message to the trash; the 
trash will be emptied by a later user action.
Flag "D" (draft): the user considers this message a draft; toggled at 
user discretion.
Flag "F" (flagged): user-defined flag; toggled at user discretion.
