stop emails automatically showing as read when clicked on


New Email
Hi ... when I single-click on an "unread" message in my Hotmail inbox so that I can view it in the reading pane, it automatically changes the status of the message to "read". Does anyone know how or where to change the settings so the message remains as "unread" until its actually been opened (ie. by double-clicking on it). I like to leave my messages as "unread" until I've dealt with them, but at the moment I have to keep changing the status back to "unread" again. I'm sure I used to be able to do this but have recently changed my laptop and now I cant.

I think this feature is up to mailserver. Maybe MS is updating their mail server these two days. You know they have just adopted new antispam mechanism yesterday.
