UNcheck the box "Mark previewed messages as having been read"
Unfortunately, that means that when I do click on a message and read it, it remains 'unread'. I like to see it marked read after I select it. I just don't like to have it marked read when I open the folder and the highlight happens to land on an unread message.
I guess the magic question there is "When does that message get marked as read, then"?
For me, in Preview Mode, I'm happy with anything I do after I enter the folder. Mouse click on a header, ENTER key, cursor up/down, etc. That way, I get to see that the message is unread when I arrive at the folder, and have the choice of reading it or going to another (unread or read) message.
It's good to see you responding, David. I hope it isn't going to be too demanding on your time.
