Hi @merrcury,

Thanks a lot for your bug report. Unfortunately, I was not able to reproduce the issue.

Can you please let me know, which e-mail provider you are using where this happens? Also let me know how the e-mail thread is structured (so which e-mails were incoming and which ones were outgoing)?

Best regards

Hi @Phylu,

It was a Google Workspace email.

Email Structure: It was a conversation aimed at multiple people. All persons are using “Reply All”. I haven’t replied to the conversation(in any manner). I have read the entire conversation on the Browser. But Its still showing Unread in MailSpring App even after reading the same in MailSpring too.

Best Regards

Can you please try the following: Go to Preferences > Accounts > Rebuild Cache.
Does this set the read state of the e-mail in questions correctly?

Yes, After Rebuilding the Cache, It’s gone.

Perfect. I am going to close the issue then in order to keep it clean here.
