Marking Emails as Read Macro

I used to have a rule set up so that I'd read someone else's emails and when I'd finished it would mark them as read again. Does anyone have the coding for such a request?

Example: There are 100 emails unread and 5 new unread emails come in, I read the 5 new ones and when I've finished I run the macro which then marks the 5 unread again.
