Emails automatically mark as read in outlook

Before explaining about the mark as read process, you must know the difference between Outlook in desktop and Outlook on the web. You have an option “To disable mark as read” in Outlook in desktop. Both the Outlook has same process but few major differences which says both are not same in mark as read option.

Let’s see how to mark as read in Outlook for the Web (Exchange online):

Step 1: There is your name in right side of the corner and also, there is a gear icon just click on it.
Step 2: The panel will be opened when you click the gear pan. At the bottom, you can see the option called “your app settings” and then click on Mail option
Step 3: Then do as progressed here: Click on the mail option and then choose automatic processing. Finally select the choice called mark as read.
Step 4: Here, you can set the choice by yourself like “Don’t automatically mark item as read”.
Step 5: Finally save the process.

Let us see for Exchange 2016:

Gear icon> options> mail>automatic processing> mark as read> Don’t automatically mark item as read> Save.

Let us learn for Outlook.com:

Gear icon> options> mail>automatic processing> mark as read> Don’t automatically mark item as read> Save.
From this, you can easily judge that both Exchange 2016 and Outlook.com have same process.

But you have few difference in Outlook.com (beta interface):

Step 1: Tap on the icon gear and the panel settings window will be opened in front of you.

Step 2: From the panel settings choose the option called View full settings.
Step 3: In navigational panel, select the choice mail and then message handling.
Step 4: Below to the navigational panel, you have mark as read section and now, set the option by yourself “Don’t automatically mark item as read”.
Step 5: Save the process.

In Exchange 2013, it is easy to set the option follow the below steps:

Step 1: At the right side, you have gear icon tap on it and the from the main menu click on the choice options.
Step 2: Select the settings option from the navigational panel and then in read pane set the choice as don’t automatically mark item as read.
