Apparently, what has happened is that you used mail(1), but forgot to
set the 'hold' option. This means that any email messsages you marked
as read (either manually or by reading them) have now been moved from
your default `$MAIL' folder to `$HOME/mbox'.
Now you can use mail(1) to move these back to your `$MAIL' folder
wherever that is.
% giorgos at gothmog:/home/giorgos$ mail -f mbox

Ranges of messages can be moved to the $MAIL folder with:
s 1-100 $MAIL
