All of a sudden Outlook has started not marking messages as read when opened or right click/mark as read.
HOWEVER if you exit Outlook and reload it the correct changes are displayed.
This is only happening on one workstation.

Can be a profile issue.. try creating a temp mail profile just to test if the issue is solved!

Try this

File>Options>Add-Ins>Manage (bottom of window)> select radio button and choose 'Disabled Items' then select 'GO'.

I tried that before I posted this and it made no joy. Glad we both found the same link.
I am recreating his profile on another computer and seeing if it behaves identicaly. As the Exchange Folder is large am still waiting for it to finish syncing.

Try your luck with the new profile and let me know if it does not work.

The problem seems to have recified itself as sponaneously and unexpectedly as it started.
I'd like to know what the cause was Outlook is critical to our contract management and it is vital to know, accurately, what has and has not been read.

Not sure how to close this case off. Ideally love to know the answer however unpalatable and weird the answer might be.
