Outlook 2010 Action Required.

I got an email with *Action Required*, when I right -click on it and select Mark as Read, it does not mark it as Read.

I wonder how is this configured and what is the purpose?

Thanks

Can you post the screenshot of the email? Not the text but the Outlook toolbar when email is selected and Toolbar of the email when opened in a window.

Is it a meeting request? Do you have an antivirus solution, updated and current, to be sure it has no malicious content?

Try to use keyboard shortcuts

marking a message as read you can use CTRL+ENTER or CTRL+Q
marking a message as unread you can use CTRL+U

I believe that 's meant to be that way in Outlook…
When you send an email for users and you want them to take action before a certain deadline
 otherwise the email will not be able to be marked as Read…

I noticed after the deadline is over I was able to mark it as Read.

When you open the message, do you see any possible "actions" available to you?
Usually action drop down list can be seen when you open the message - http://screencast.com/t/KzIdX0My88

or

Is the "Action Required" text part of the subject line?

If you want to send email to users and want them to respond within a day, otherwise the email stays "Unread" until they respond or the time goes past 1 day …

how would you do that?

It sounds like a new question to me.  The option to cause "read" versus "unread" status on Email  should rely with the owner of the Email, methinks.
