Hi master,

Thanks for you quick reply.

Open Outlook and click File to open Backstage View, and select Options.
In Options select Mail on the left menu, and under Outlook panes click on the Reading Pane button.
Check the box Mark items as read when viewed in the Reading Pane to make Outlook mark your messages as read when you view them in the Reading Pane. Enter 180 seconds (which equals 3 minutes)

Try this:

1.      From the Messages menu on the BlackBerry smartphone, click Options.
2.      Click Email Reconciliation.
3.      Set the Wireless Reconcile field to Off.
4.      From the Email Reconciliation menu, click Save.
