I have a client with SBS 2011 Standard fully patched. I have set up a 2nd accepted domain on their server with a single user mailbox that 3 users have full managed access to. However if one user opens / reads an email it is not synchronised to the other instances of the mailbox on other users Outlook 2010 clients. Similarly if a user then marks an email as Unread it does not update on the other Outlook client instances. This behaviour is not replicated on the other accepted domain.

I'm not really sure how you are determining, "This behaviour is not replicated on the other accepted domain."?

Having per-user read and unread status is not available on a standard mailbox in Exchange 2010.  That feature is only found on Public Folders, which could easily be set up as a shared mailbox instead.

A standard mailbox doesn't recognize who read a message - a read message is a read message.

Maybe I should explain further. It isn't that it should identify who read a message - that's pretty obvious - its whether the message is shown as read in all instances of the mailbox, which it isn't. Furthermore I have no problems marking messages as read and unread on a standard mailbox in exchange 2010.

I have subsequently solved this myself.

Sorry, I actually read more into your question than what was there.
