    Default Mutliple Email 'Mark Read' "issue"

    Hello,

    I've noticed if you hit the Select All checkbox in Zimbra, if you right click on any email the "Mark Read" will be grayed out if there's even one already read email in the list, yet even if there's unread emails you can select "Mark Unread" which will mark them all unread.

    This holds true even if you manually select the emails and add even one previously read email to your list. Sometimes I won't read the emails (not that critical etc) but I don't want to delete it either just incase, but I hate seeing say 157 new/unread emails in my inbox. It would be great if I could hit the "Select All" and then right click on any one email and hit 'Mark Read' and have all the messages marked as read. If it can be done with 'Mark Unread', why can't it be done with 'Mark Read'?

    Also, just clicking each message to make it report as being read isn't a practical option as some nested messages may go 25 deep and only 1 within that group is "Unread" etc.

    Anyhow, just a suggestion (that I really wish can be implemented)

    Thanks!

    Not on my (ZCS 8.0.2) server it doesn't, selecting all the email and then right-clicking shows the "mark read" or mark unread" options and they can be select for the appropriate action. You've also forgotten the most important information from your post, the Zimbra version and release that you're using.

    Ah, so it's something that be can set/unset (good to know). I'm not the one running the Zimbra server, and the way it appeared it looked like a zimbra limitation (not a config setting because why would someone disable that?!)

    Our mail server is running Zimbra 7.2.0_GA-2669 (build 20120410001942)

    I'll have to check with the guys that handle our Zimbra server.. thanks!
