The trouble with EOM is that you still need to click on the email you received to un-bold it. EOM or not, you are still opening it.

If you read your email on a desktop, or from the the gmail website I would definitely recommend learning the keyboard shortcuts so you don't have to click. In just a few seconds I can star all the ones in my inbox that I plan to read, and archive the rest including the EOM short mails. I do end up archiving a lot of unread mail this way but that rarely bothers me when searching for old mail.

Check if your client has keyboard shortcuts that can mark-as-read from the inbox summary. I know gmail and gnus both support it.
