Outlook – Have deleted email in Outlook become ‘read’


I often delete emails by hitting the 'x' when the little popup window shows a new email, so they end up in my Deleted Items, but they still show as read (so DI is bold, and there's a number in parentheses after).

Where can I set it in Outlook so that all deleted emails automatically have 'read' status?

  • The commercial product, ReliefJet Essentials for Outlook (I am one of its developers), has a free feature: Outlook Tweaker. It provides a Mark deleted items as read automatically feature. Just check this box and all your messages will be marked as read when they are deleted.
