I generally manage my mail in a terminal using Mutt. Very occasionally though, I need to read an email from my phone, so I’ve installed K-9 Mail v5.600 on my Android phone.
It pretty much all works fine except that after I open K-9 mail and look at some folders (but not actually open any emails) and then quit, it marks the entire folder as “seen”. Then when I look at it again in Mutt all the mails that were once considered “New” i.e. unread, now have an “O” flag instead.
I would ideally like it so that K-9 Mail does not change the status of any message unless I have tapped on it in order to read it.
Is this possible?
If not then I guess I can try using an ACL on the Dovecot IMAP server side in order to restrict my user to only “lookup” and “read” permissions.
