From TFM:

# Marking Messages

There are times that it's useful to ask Mutt to "remember" which message
you're currently looking at, while you move elsewhere in your mailbox.
You can do this with the "mark-message" operator, which is bound to the
"~" key by default.  Press this key to enter an identifier for the
marked message. When you want to return to this message, press "'" and
the name that you previously entered.

(Message marking is really just a shortcut for defining a macro that
returns you to the current message by searching for its Message-ID.  You
can choose a different prefix by setting the $mark_macro_prefix


> can you limit the view to messages with marks?

No, the marks don't exist.
Marking just generates a macro.
