Messages marked as read

Not open for further replies.


One of my collegues at work has read rights to my inbox in his outlook 2007. When I open my own outlook2007, all my new messages are marked as read because my collegues has read them. How can we prohibit my new messages to be marked as read when he reads them? We har using Exchange 2007

Have him mark them unread when done, or perhaps have him use the preview pane when he looks at your emails ( and ensure mark as read in preview pane is not enabled in Options)


Check with Outlook settings Goto Tools>Options>Email>Reading Pane>Mark items as Read when viewing in Reading Pane is unchecked..

The emails will be still be marked as Read if the other user, opens the messages completely and closes it, they will not be marked as read when viewed in Reading Pane
