    I have "Mark message read after displayed for" '0' seconds checked.
    But in my Junk e-mail folder the messages don't get marked as read when I
    select them,
    only when I open them. I'm assuming this is because there isn't a the
    reading pane for the Junk e-mail folder
    even though I have "Show reading pane" checked in "Layout" a reading pane
    doesn't display in the Junk email right pane.
    Is this normal?
    I'd rather just click on the message instead of opening the message to mark
    it as read.

    You can press Ctrl-Enter or Ctrl-q for that (or if it is in a thread,
    Ctrl-t).

    The new beta has a Unread/Read button which you could use to toggle the
    state of a selected message using your mouse.

    Common to both versions you could also use a selected message's right-click
    menu to do the same thing. I suppose there is probably also an equivalent
    Action menu item in the old version that I would have never used but again,
    it would involve a multi-step process to do the marking.

    FWIW Ctrl-u (or, if appropriate CursorDown), Ctrl-Enter is what I have
    always used. And Menu,n to reverse the marking (making a message
    unread.)


    FYI

    I have been using the message's right-click and selecting "Mark as read".
    Now IO know the shortcut keys.

    Thanks,

  4. Yes, that's normal for messages in the Junk E-mail folder.
