User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 A message is automatically marked as read when the user opens the message in a new window or if it's displayed in the Message Pane. If you browse a list of unread messages with the Message Pane open, the messages will be marked as read, which can be annoying. There's an option in Outlook Express where you specify N seconds the program should wait while you're viewing a message before it marks the message as read (very convenient, it usually takes a few seconds anyway to actually read any message). You can also disable automatic marking of messages as read, so it has to be done manually (which is what I prefer doing, so I can keep track of read/unread messages more carefully). To help with that, there are toolbar buttons for "Mark as Read", "Mark Unread" and "Mark All as Read". ---------- So basically what I'm asking for is: 1. Option to disable automatic Mark as Read feature 2. Option to set amount of seconds the program should wait while you're viewing a message before marking it as read 3. Three additional toolbar buttons: Mark as Read, Mark Unread, and Mark All as Read This would be very helpful to keep track of read messages. I'd also help those accustomed to this feature from Outlook Express to make the transition to Mozilla Thunderbird. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce:
This should probably be two separate bugs: bug x (this bug?): Option to set amount of seconds the program should wait while you're viewing a message before marking it as read bug y (new bug?): Additional toolbar button (with dropdown options): Mark as un-/read (default), mark thread un-/read, and Mark All as un-/Read. Scott, should someone (reporter?) spin off a 2nd bug?
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: PC → All
while we're all asking for amendments to "mark" functionality, i still miss NS4.xx's MARK BY DATE extraordinarily... it's especially convenient when you only want the last month or week or day's postings...
messages / mark / by date it's already there
Both features are available in the latest build (20031126). However, the automatic mark as read feature after n seconds has not been checked in so far.
