Q2h1Y2sgT3R0

#1
I use Outlook 2003 and have rules set up to move certain Sent items to other

folders. My hang-up is that they always show up as unread. Is there a way

to accomplish this? My rule is set up to move a copy of a message sent to a

certain person to that person's folder. I haven't found an option to also

mark it as read. Any ideas? The closest option I can find is "Do a custom

action" but I have no idea what a custom action is.

That's because Outlook has no built-in way to allow that. You can always run

a rule manually from time to time or right-click the folder and choose Mark

All as Read.
