Hi All,
I have office365 and i have an issue :
I have 4 emails in my Inbox that keep changing back to un 'Unread' state. This is very annoying.
I see it happen also on the web interface (Owa) .
How can this be further investigated and fixed ?

Best Regards,
Osher .

Hi,

are you connected to an Exchange Server? If so the issue can be solved installing Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 2

Here is a link to the problem described by Microsoft (with a link to the update sources):

Are there any rules or conditional formatting options set up that probably just apply to those 4 messages?

What if you move those 4 mails to another folder and mark them as read there? Do they become unread in another folder as well? Otherwise if it is maybe just related to those 4 items this could be a workaround.
