How to disable mark as read completely RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I already have turned off automatic "Mark as read".

    Is there a way to completely disable any and all automatic "Mark as read", even if you double click the message to open?

  • Hi rkut,

    According to my research, I'm afraid that there is no option in Outlook or registry key to completely disable marking messages as read.

    If you double click to view the email, it will always be marked as read. We can right click the message and manually mark it as unread. As a workaround, you can also check messages in Reading Panel only.

    If you have more concerns on this feature, it is encouraged to visit the Outlook user voice forum: https://outlook.uservoice.com/ to vote for a similar idea or post your own.

    By the way, could we know why you want keep email unread?

    Hope the information is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry

  • Hi rkut,

    I've found another thread here. If you want to track emails, we can use flags to distinguish which message was already replied.
