Re: All Unread Messages are loaded into Inbox As Read

Let's try one more idea...I don't know many details about
IMAP accounts. Maybe it is AOL making them change to
read? Once you get the emails into Windows Mail, go
offline - see if they stay unread. Actually disconnect
from the net or click work offline.

WM->File->Work Offline.

Appreciate the help. Thanks!

Try this, boot into Safe Mode With Networking.
If you've never booted into safe mode, when you
boot up, at some point early on, your screen will
say to press an "F" key - what you want to press
is F8. Tap it until you get some indication that
booting has switched and will go into safe mode.
You should get a black screen with a menu.
Choose safe mode with networking. That will
load only basic Windows files. No extra programs.

Then attempt to receive mail and see if it stays
bold (unread).

I agree with your point at the end about something tampering with
database and/or triggering them to be marked read but this
after the
clean install too... Could it be Microsoft's Malware tool,
or some other Vista tool?

Its a very odd issue and my only thought is that something is
tampering with the database or its some other process that is
triggering them to be marked read.
