Changes to the "read" status don't get updated back on the Imail server v.5. I'm
sure Imail is just doing something non-standard with IMAP commands, but Outlook
and outlook express work! Essentially, a message becomes un-bolded after I've
read it, but if I select another folder, and then select back to the original,
the read messages returns to "bold". 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use an IMAP account on an IMail 6 server (email me if you need a test account)
2. Receive a new message, read it, wait until it becomes unhilighted.
3. Change folders, change back

Actual Results:  The read message is displayed in Bold again.

Expected Results:  The read message remain non-bolded

If you need an IMail account to test this, contact me. radon@kzsu.stanford.edu

Does the message get marked read after previweing it twice? See bug 159267. This
might be a dup of that. Also an imap log might help people figure out whats
happening. See http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap

Does not appear to be the same problem described in 159267: after previewing
twice (or any number of times) the message is still marked as unseen.

Should this bug be marked as new considering that there's a dup for it?

I also am using Imail as my imap server.  It seems I only have this problem 
when I enable "Make the messages in my Inbox available when I am working

This happens to me too with Mozilla 1.1, but not with every message.  Certain
messages just don't behave while others take on the Read status just fine. 
Moving the problem messages to another folder, reading them there, and then
moving them back seems to take care of it.  Other clients handle the problem
messages just fine.

My server is IMAP4rev1 v12.264

I believe the imail specific problem was fixed in 1.3 or earlier. Does anyone
still see this?
