Hi Experts
My mail Server is running on exchange server 2003,every thing is running fine,Some of my users are using the PDA Phones and blakberry devices to downloading the mails using POP.Once the mail has been delivered to the handheld device it is "marked as read" on users mailbox in exchange Server & once user et back to his workstation which is directly connected to exchange server it shows that the mail has been read.
Is there any way to do such a setting that mail should only be treated as read once user has read it from his/her mail client.

Thanks

Hi inteq,

Yes, don't use POP3

For blackberries use the BES Express server, for PDAs use ActiveSync

Check if they enabled preview pane in outlook. You can change the preview pane setting by selected do not mark items read in preview pane.

If it is pop3, it doesn't matter

As soon as the emails are downloaded, it marks them as read

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

That is standard behaviour of Exchange - in fact it would be standard behaviour for any POP3 server.
The setting for leaving email on the server or not doesn't really matter. As far as the POP3 protocol is concerned, those messages are read.
It is then down to the client software to manage the read/unread status.

Is there any way to make such a setting that it doesn't mark them as read even the messages are being downloaded using POP3, as my finanace don't want to invest on BES Server.

No, there isn't, and what investment are you talking about?

BES Express is FREE for one BB!
