Subject: When opening email links, unseen messages marked as read!
Date: Fri, 05 Nov 2010 13:47:22 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <80pqukx7hh.fsf@mundaneum.com> (raw)


I just found out a particularly annoying feature of following email links.

Let's say I follow a link to an email stored in my INBOX.friends.

1. I do C-c C-o on the link.
2. It opens a summary buffer with that mail as only line in it
3. It displays its content below or on the left, depending on the window

That's working as expected.

Now, suppose I have 1 unseen (hence, unread as well) email that has been moved
into that same INBOX.friends folder (because of the splitting rules).

The above sequence becomes:

1. I do C-c C-o on the link.
2. It opens a summary buffer with that mail *and the unseen messages*.
3. It displays the content of the linked email below or on the left.

But... the unseen messages are marked as read, though I've not read them at
all... Hence, if I quit that article window without taking care, I've simply
almost "lost" emails: I will never read them, as they never will appear
anymore in my list of mails to read...

Any idea on what's causing this?

In my case, I read emails with Gnus 5.13. I don't know if this is related to
Gnus, or to the process of following email links: what about WL, for example?

Best regards,
