    In Gmail, if you mark an email as unread it will become bold and display the following notice:

    Gmail the conversation has been marked as unread.jpg

    If you try to mark an email as read that's already read you'll get a notice but obviously nothing happens since the email is already read:

    Gmail mark as read.jpg

    There are both buttons and/or menu options to mark email and conversations as (un)read including:

    Gmail arrow mark as unread.jpg Gmail more mark as unread.jpg

    It is also possible to pick a message within a conversation and mark unread from a point within a conversation:

    Gmail mark conversation unread from here.jpg
