    Inbox messages automatically marked as read (OE Version 6)

    When I receive new email the messages are all marked as unread. However after some time, the messages in my inbox are all automatically changed to "read." This is very annoying, since my main way of identifying which emails require my action is to leave them as "unread."

    I've checked everything I can think of in Options, including the setting to mark messages as read when selected for a certain number of seconds, which is turned off. I'm also sure that I haven't accidentally hit Ctrl-Shift-A (which would mark all messages as read). So I'm stumped.

    I'm particularly puzzled by this behavior since I've used OE for a long time and it has never done this before. This new behavior has been sudden, and I haven't made any changes that might have precipitated it.

    Any suggestions? Any one else seen this behavior?

    Many thanks in advance for any advice.

    regards,

    Solved my own problem. This was being caused not by OE, but by another program that was checking email and, for some unknown reason, marking everything as done in the process.
