Outlook 2010 - Auto mark all as read

cmdlive asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

We have a mailbox we use for service updates, etc. Severel users have the mailbox on their phone and it recieves 2-500 mails a day. They would like for all mails to be marked as read once a day, so it don't accumulate to a huge number and makes the unread counter on their mobile useless.

Do you know of a way to automate a daily "mark all as read" service in the inbox? I have looked at rules, but was not able to find anything usefull. Also looked at macro's, but was only able to find examples for "mark all as read" in a seperate folder in the inbox, like spam, etc. Also I was not able to find anything about auto running the macro once a day.
