I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem since the BIS upgrade to 2.3.
I have an 8800 on AT&T & my primary email is pacbell/yahoo
If you have outlook or outlook express ( or any pop) pop this e-mail from your pc then it is marked as "read" by your service provider (Yahoo, Gmail) when that occurs. Then that e-mail is marked as "read" on the BB. I noticed this also because I do a quick glance at my BB and look for the yellow folder to show me I have "unread" mail. After looking for a while I noticed I had 5 new e-mails- they were just already marked"read.
I believe that is the answer but it is just what I have deducted- not an official answer.
good luck- let me know if that helps
