I use v3.1.1 Bild 1118 on WinXP. When I click on a message it remains
marked as unread. When I use the drop down menu to move a message it
remains marked as unread.
I like the behaviour that way. It is practical to me because not every
message I skim over shortly needs to be marked as unread afterwards. I
can mark as read what I've read completly.
