I have an unread folder in my Office Outlook 2007 account, the problem is when I select an item it becomes read, how can I make a folder that always force any emails inside it to be always unread?
I came across this post, I know it's old but perhaps this will help.
I just change my settings in outlook to not mark selection as "read" on it's own.
If I want something marked as "read" I have to specifically select the message, and the "mark as read" button.
IN 2010 go to Outlook Options | Mail | Outlook panes | Reading Pane...
choose the options you want.
