Eudora 7.1 is automatically marking messages on the mail server as read
Posted on 2014-04-24
I have an email account set up in Eudora 7.1 as POP, leave a copy on the server for 31 days.
Messages viewed in my webmail account for this email address are mistakenly indicating that they are read, as follows:
1. When I access the account through webmail, and send myself a test message from another account, the email arrives in my webmail inbox bolded (unread).
2. As soon as Eudora receives that email via POP, the message in my webmail becomes unbolded, as if already read. However, the message has not been opened in either location.
3. Eudora properly shows the message as unread (bold).
The net effect is that emails are showing up on my cell phone unbolded (or shortly after being received), so I can't tell what I've read.
I cannot find any setting in Eudora that tells it to mark the server message as "read". Can anyone explain or guess what might be going on?
