Junk marked as read when I hit the Not junk mail button

    When I scan my junk folder, there are sometimes messages that I'm not sure
    about. These I delete, whereupon they get moved to the Deleted items folder.
    The Junk-email unread message count goes down and the Deleted items unread
    count goes up. I can then locate them quickly in that folder and deal with
    as appropriate.

    If I recognize a message in the junk folder as not junk and hit the Not junk
    mail button, it moves to its proper folder, but it is simultaneously marked
    as read. This means I can't see at a glance where it landed. Can anyone
    confirm that this happens? If the Not junk mail action always marks the
    message as read, it's a bug. If it doesn't always do it, what is the
    criterion for doing it?

    Hi, Noel.
    Yes, I can confirm! And I agree that it is a bug.

    Usually the not-junk message goes into the Inbox for that Account. But
    since it's marked Read, it's not easy to find there - and it does not show
    up in Quick views | Unread e-mail. And if one or more mail rules apply, who
    knows where it might go. :>(

    Noel,
    Ditto...same here..
    Having returned from vacation and not having accessed email for any length
    of time I had plenty of junk mail messages to duplicate the same issue.
    Feedback also sent.

    Fyi
    - If I hit the not Junk mail option(or use the context menu), it always goes
    to that same account's inbox.
    - in my feedback I also noted that dragging another unread message from the
    Junk-email folder to the another folder in the same or different account
    retains its unread status.

    Do you mind???? It's 7º F/-13.89º C here in Chicago and you have to rub it
    in. LOL Just kidding. I'm just jealous, that's all. Welcome back and may
    you have many more happy, sunny vacations.

    My goodness, that must have been quite a shock. Of course it's -3º now here
    in Chicago, without the wind chill. But the sun is shining and from the
    inside out, it looks like a nice day. LOL
