Hi

I wrote a visual basic app that controls outlook and I'm
able to add new items , but when I set the unread property
to true it does nothing. all other properties are executed
very nicely.

any one has an idea?

thanks

do you know if that version of outlook has the internet mail enhancement patch - it was supposed to have a hotfix for problems with the read/unread flags

I am using the following code

oItem.UnRead = True
oItem.Save
'...
oItem.UnRead = False
oItem.Save

where oItem was a message in Inbox and it works,
May be you forget to call Save after changing UnRead propery?
