Hello,

I had a POP3 account in Outlook that had a filter that if the sender if a@aol.com, it automatically moves it to a folder called "B". This worked perfectly and in the icon in the taskbar, it did not change to the "new mail" icon.

I changed that account to IMAP and added the filter but now the "new mail" icon shows up whenever it happens. How do I make it so it only appears when there is new mail in my inbox?

Thank you

Isn't there an extra rule you can add to the filter to mark the email as read when it is moved?

I know this can be done in Thunderbird. Don't have access to an Outlook install to test it.

I thought about this as a workaround (even though it isnt ideal) but no. As far as I can see, this option doesnt exist.

You'll need to create two rules, one to move the email to the folder, and another to mark it as read.

What version of Office is that?

It looks like Microsoft removed it from Outlook 2013, go figure. :rolleyes:

It may be possible with some VBA scripting, but aside from that I can't seem to find a solution for this.

I run Outlook 2013 and 'Mark as Read' is still there pretty much in the exact same place.

The manual option is still there, but in previous versions you were able to create a rule that would automatically mark an email as read without you needing to do anything. It appears that they have removed this rule from 2013 for whatever reason.

:laugh:
So I was right to begin with? I didn't think it would make sense to remove it, but as I don't run 2013 I was just going with what riahc said. That, and Google seemed surprisingly void of any information relating to the rule in 2013.

So there you go then. Like I said, two rules. One to move the email to a folder and another rule to mark it as read.

Ok, I think I found the answer. In your email, right click on the "unread mail" search folder and select "customize this search folder." From there you can select which folders get included under the "unread mail" search folder.
