Summary0001585: Option to not automatically mark mails as read

Currently if I select an unread mail (which also means switching to a folder where the first mail is marked unread) the mail is automaticly marked as read. There should be an option to toggle this behaviour.

has duplicate 0003281 new email - auto read ( enable / disable)

Any comments or updates?

Or perhaps always add a 2-sec delay before actually marking a message as 'read'.

Also because in the current situation: using arrow-down to go down five messages, marks all four messages in-between automatically as 'read'... Not so nice. :-(

Thunderbird has an option to set whatever you want for the delay. I've settled on 5 seconds as the most useful to me (gives me time to scan an email and decide to delete it, deal with it, or come back to it later before it gets auto marked as read).

We're in 2019, Roundcude has the option to not mark as read, Thunderbird has the option to not mark as read, EVEN OUTLOOK has the option to not mark as read, OUTLOOK!!!

SOGo... where were you in the last couple of decades since all email and webmail interfaces support this feature???

+1 we also want this function!

I would also love to see this feature.

I don't want to sound like my boss, but this seems to be a relatively strait forward, self-contained task and there seems to be a demand for it. Is there anything blocking this that I'm not aware of?

I'm supporting this request!

very important feature request

  • perhaps we can start with an easy config parameter, like SOGOClientAutoRead = false, to disable it global.

Found the "auto" read-flag @ the source:

this happens always, if you automatically view a message.
