    'Mark as Read' Action / Rule (Outlook 2000 SR1)

    Does anyone know how to create a rule action to mark certain eMails 'As Read'?

    What I want to do is move eMails that I've sent to specific sub-folders within the 'Sent Items' folder. I'm able to move a copy, but when it lands in the appropriate sub-folder it shows as a new eMail. So, I have to navigate to that folder & mark the eMail 'As Read'.

    Can anyone help with this?

    Thanks

    learn c++ <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    there is a mark read action at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.slipstick.com>http://www.slipstick.com</A>

    Moving mail shouldn't result in the read state changing though. i can't repro it here.

    I have exactly the same problem and suffer the same frustration. Will try the Mark as Read action but thought I would mention you're not the only one experiencing it.

    I've seen this happen when you've enabled "In folders other than the inbox, save replies..." The only thing that helped was to turn it off. Tools | Options | Email Options btn | Advanced Email.
