We are using Exchange to get e-mail sent to an iPhone. But whenever I receive the e-mail on the iPhone, it is marked as "Read" in my Outlook 2010 whether I actually read it or not.

How do I prevent Outlook from marking it as "Read?"

It's the fact your you are probably using pop instead of imap. Check in your iphone settings and see the outgoing server is set to imap.(your host).com

For example with gmail it is imap.gmail.com

That will allow it to be on multiple servers.

Check the settings in exchange as well just to be safe.
