I have the following code in my Outlook today page to list the emails in my

inbox and provide a link to open them. My question is how do I mark the

emails as read when I click on them?

<script language="VBScript" type="text/vbscript"
Function GetInboxSubjects()

Dim theApp

Dim theOLNS

Dim inboxFolder

Dim mSubject, MyArray, MyMsg

Set theApp = window.external.OutlookApplication

Set theOLNS = theApp.GetNameSpace("MAPI")

Set inboxFolder = theOLNS.GetDefaultFolder(6)

For Each InboxItem In inboxFolder.Items

'Check if message has been read or not

If InboxItem.UnRead = True then

TF = "No"

Else

TF = "Yes"

End If

'Email information table

mList = "<TABLE WIDTH='100%' BORDER='0' CELLPADDING='3' CELLSPACING='0'

FRAME='below' style='table-layout:fixed'><TR><TD WIDTH='25%' style='border-

color:black; border-width:0' nowrap><A HREF='outlook:inbox/"& InboxItem.

EntryID & "' title='Read " & InboxItem.Subject & "'>" & InboxItem.SenderName

& "</A></TD><TD WIDTH='43%' style='border-color:black; border-width:0'

nowrap><A HREF='outlook:inbox/"& InboxItem.EntryID & "' title='Read " &

InboxItem.Subject & "'>" & InboxItem.Subject & "</A></TD><TD WIDTH=25%'

style='border-color:black; border-width:0' nowrap>" & InboxItem.SentOn &

"</TD><TD WIDTH='7%' style='border-color:black; border-width:0' nowrap>" & TF

& "</TD></TR>" & mList

Next

'Header table

mList = "<TABLE WIDTH='100%' BGCOLOR='Silver' BORDER='1' CELLPADDING='3'

CELLSPACING='0' FRAME='rhs' style='table-layout:fixed'><TR><TD WIDTH='25%'

style='border-color:black; border-width:0'>Sender</TD><TD WIDTH='43%'

style='border-color:black'>Subject</TD><TD WIDTH='25%' style='border-color:

black; border-width:0'>Date</TD><TD WIDTH='7%' style='border-color:

silver'>Read</TD></TR></TABLE>" & mList

'Fill the <div
document.getElementById("Subject").innerHTML = mList

'Update the table every 30 seconds

cTimer = setTimeout("GetInboxSubjects()",30000)

Set theApp = Nothing

Set theOLNS = Nothing

Set inboxFolder = Nothing

End Function

</Script

Have you tried to set teh Unread property to false?

Do not loop through all the messages in a folder. Use Items.Find/FindNext

I have tried to set the Unread property to false using an onclick event, but

it seems to ignore the onclick since I have a <a href

What is the relevant snippet of your code? Do you call MailItem.Save?

Here is what I have so far...it doen's even fire the MsgBox.

Sub MarkAsRead()

Dim theApp

Dim theOLNS

Set theApp = window.external.OutlookApplication

Set theOLNS = theApp.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)

MsgBox "Marking as read"

If theOLNS.UnRead = True then

theOLNS.UnRead = False

theOLNS.Save

End If

Set theApp = Nothing

Set theOLNS = Nothing

End Sub

Which is a good indication that the MarkAsRead sub does not even get called,

right?
