Lightbulb How to see unread e-mails only in Alpine?

Does anyone have any idea how to see only unread (new) e-mails in the Alpine client when using IMAP?

I finally have a fast IMAP client, but don't want to go over all the e-mails I've already read through other clients...

Thanks in advance for any hints.

There I set up a Filter for messages I've already read (is New = No) to Move to another folder (read).

Yay! ^^
