Perhaps I'm being obtuse, but I can't figure this out. Every email I receive to my IMAP account shows up marked as "read" before I ever open it. This happens regardless of whether I ping the server on my iphone, or check my email using Outlook or Thunderbird. (In other words, there isn't anything my computer / phone is doing that might do it automatically.)
The only thing I can think of is that I have my emails set to also forward to a yahoo and gmail account, but unless Dreamhost manually opens and forwards each one, that doesn't make any sense.
Though this isn't the biggest issue in the world, any help would be appreciated.
(And if this was already addressed in the forums, I'd welcome any thoughts as to how to narrow a search for "email AND read" to less than a zillion pages.)
