    Using outlook 2003 and a pop3 server to access my webmail email, i am able to send and recieve. However when i read my emails and close outlook the items remain unread when i check outlook later. This happens quite often and is very annoying... any help is appreciated.

    2 gig ram

    Athlon 64 FX - 53: 2.4ghz

    Outlook Express has a tab to fix this-maybe Outlook has the same.
    TOOLS/OPTIONS/tab READ
    check Mark Messages READ after displaying (add 5 seconds)

    Maybe that seconds number has been raised above the time you take to scan messages. OE doesnt care IF you peek at a message-it cares HOW long you stare at it.
