I have just set up windows 10 mail to use both my gmail and yahoo mail accounts. However, when I look at an email in the Mail app, it does not mark them as read (for either account).

Is there a fix for this?


  • If you mark the emails as read does it fix the issue? or doe it not mark them as read when you do that? – NetworkKingPin May 3 '16 at 8:54
  • Sorry for the delayed reply, right clicking and marking as read does the job, it's just not when I actually read the email normally. – Jon May 13 '16 at 14:15
  1. Go to mail app, Setting > Reading Pane > "Mark item as read" section.
  2. There you can select how you want the mail app to know when any mail is read, either by:
    • marking it as read on selection change, or
    • marking it as read if mail is viewed by more than 5 (or any) seconds
