Same e-mail Id configured on two different PCs in outlook2010. The problem is that if one user on a PC reads e-mail then it automatically Read on another PC. But I would like to make sure the user on 2nd PC should read the e-mail. So how to approach this problem to force 2nd user also should read the e-mail.
Generally Outlook will read the status of the message from the server which it is connected to. One thing you can try is to mark the message as unread in Outlook once you are done reading it -- this should mark it as unread in the other client as well.
According to the link below you can do the following:
Go to: View-> Reading Pane-> Options -- then Uncheck the appropriate check boxes.

From what you have said it sounds like your email server is using either IMAP or Exchange. What you want to do would probably work if you change your setup to POP but this may just create more problems.
