Only mark as read when message is opened with double-click

Reported by Martin McCallion | March 8th, 2012 @ 09:39 PM

It's common in most mail programs to be able to choose that messages are not marked as read when you select them and view them in the preview pane, but only when you open them in their own window by double-clicking.

It would be nice to have that feature in MailMate.

Admittedly it's not possible in Apple Mail, though there is a plugin you can get that provides this feature.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    If you update to the latest beta of MailMate (if you are not using the App Store version) then there is an option for this in the viewer preferences pane. You update in the Software Update preferences pane.

    One caveat though: It does not mark the message as read if opening in a separate window. You have to do that explicitly (using custom key bindings you can do that with a single key).

    Thanks for the quick reply. That does work as you describe.
